      More interest

    Correct Answer
    C. More interesting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "more interesting" because it follows the comparative form of the adjective "interesting." When comparing two things, we use the structure "more + adjective" to indicate that one thing has a higher degree of the quality described by the adjective than the other. In this case, we are comparing the level of interest between two things, and "more interesting" correctly conveys that one thing is more captivating or engaging than the other.

    B. Most expensive
    Explanation
    The given question is asking for the superlative form of the word "expensive" to complete the sentence "This is the ______ shirt in the store." The correct answer is "most expensive" because it follows the correct pattern for forming the superlative degree of adjectives, which is "the most + adjective."

    B. False
    Explanation

    Explanation
