Active Kids - - Tips -

When com­par­ing two things, we can say that one thing is more than the other thing, that one thing is less than the other thing, or that the two things are the same. To say that some­thing is more than some­thing else, you can use the fol­low­ing pat­terns. Ad­jec­tive+er+than – for ad­jec­tives with less than three syl­la­bles. My sis­ter is richer than your sis­ter. This car is slower than the last one. More+ad­jec­tive+than – for ad­jec­tives with three or more syl­la­bles. Sam is more in­tel­li­gent than Jim. Mary is more beau­ti­ful than Kerry. To say some­thing is less than some­thing else, you can use: Not as + ad­jec­tive + as – Rahul is not as strong as Ro­hit. Horses are not as smart as pigs. Less + ad­jec­tive + than – My dress is less colour­ful than Jaya’s. My neck­lace is less ex­pen­sive than yours. To say some­thing is more than

some­thing else in a stronger way you can use “much” or “a lot” as in the fol­low­ing. My fa­ther is a lot richer than your fa­ther. Shruthi is much more beau­ti­ful than Shalini. To say that two things are the same you can use – as + ad­jec­tive/ad­verb + as. John walks as fast as Dick. The bus is as crowded as the sub­way.
