Can one say
a. I responded to their letter as an official document, similar to the ones sent to me by the Ministry of Education.
b. I reacted to his behavior as a narcissistic outburst, similar to his ravings against his father.

?

Are they grammatical?

Many thanks.

You could. I am not sure they would convey anything meaningful.
