      Faster / most

    Correct Answer
    B. Fastest / most
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "fastest / most". In this question, we are comparing the search engine with others in terms of speed and popularity. When comparing two items, we use the comparative form of the adjective "fast" (faster) to describe the speed of the search engine. And when comparing more than two items, we use the superlative form of the adjective "fast" (fastest) to describe the most speed. Similarly, when comparing popularity, we use the superlative form of the adjective "popular" (most popular).

    D. Dangerous
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "dangerous" because the sentence is comparing the level of danger between a tiger and a lion. The word "as" indicates that the comparison is being made on an equal level, so we do not need to use comparative or superlative forms such as "more" or "most". Therefore, "dangerous" is the appropriate word to use in this context.
