    The given correct answer is "the more dangerous". This is because the phrase "the more" is used to compare two things and indicate an increasing degree of danger. In this context, it implies that the faster you drive your car in a narrow road, the greater the level of danger you will face as a driver.

    Correct Answer
    C. The better
    Explanation
    The phrase "the harder he works" suggests that the person's level of work ethic or effort is increasing. In order to convey this idea, we need to use a comparative adjective to describe the person's improvement as an employee. "The better" is the correct option as it compares the person's performance as an employee to their level of hard work.

    A. The colder
    Explanation
    As the weather became colder, fewer people were in the streets. This suggests that the colder the weather, the fewer people were willing to go outside. The comparative form "colder" is used to indicate a comparison between the initial state of the weather and its subsequent colder state, implying a decrease in the number of people in the streets.

      The oldest

    • D.

      Older

    Correct Answer
    B. The older
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The older." This is because the sentence is comparing the level of someone's performance to their age. The phrase "the older he gets" indicates that as the person gets older, their performance improves. Therefore, "the older" is the correct comparative form of the adjective "old" to complete the sentence.

    The correct answer is "The quicker" because it is the comparative form of the adjective "quick." The sentence is comparing the speed at which you finish your homework to the time you can watch your favorite series. By using the comparative form, it implies that finishing homework faster will allow you to watch the series sooner.

      The strongest

    • D.

      Stronger

    Correct Answer
    A. The stronger

    Correct Answer
    C. The easier

When something is more malleable, it means it is easier to shape or mold. Therefore, the word "easier" is the appropriate comparative form to use in this context.

    The comparative of durable is .... .

    Correct Answer
    more durable
    Explanation
    The comparative form of the adjective "durable" is "more durable." This is because when comparing two things, we use the word "more" before the adjective to indicate a higher degree of the quality described by the adjective. In this case, "durable" means able to withstand wear, pressure, or damage, and when comparing two objects, we would use "more durable" to indicate that one is able to withstand more wear, pressure, or damage than the other.

    The comparative form of the word "big" is "bigger." This is because when comparing two things, we add "-er" to the end of the adjective to indicate that one thing is larger or more significant than the other. In this case, "bigger" is the correct choice as it shows a comparison between two sizes, with one being larger than the other.

For example, "She has less money than her sister." In comparison to the adjective "little," which describes a small amount or size, "less" is used to compare two things and indicate a smaller quantity or degree.
