1. is as good as sth
comes close to standards/quality/expectations
The expression 'doesn't come close to' is used to make comparisons. "Chocolate you buy in the supermarket doesn't come close to the stuff you can buy from the chocolatier." It means there is no comparison or it is not as good as the other thing. The opposite ' to come close to' something means there is almost no distance or comparison between the two things being compared. "This wine comes very close to one I drank in Bordeaux last year." In this case, the two things being compared are similar and alike with each other.
