      Difficultest

    • C.

      More difficult

    Correct Answer
    C. More difficult
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "more difficult" because when comparing the level of difficulty between two subjects, we use the comparative form of the adjective. When comparing adjectives, if the adjective has more than 2 or more syllables “more” is used instead of adding -er to the end of the word.

    • C.

      More heavy

    Correct Answer
    A. Heavier
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "heavier" because it is the comparative form of the adjective "heavy." When comparing two things, we use the comparative form to indicate that one is more heavy than the other. In this case, the first bag is being compared to the other bag, and it is stated that it is "heavier" than the other one. The word “heavy" is one syllable, so we change the y to i and add -er to show comparison.

    B. Faster
    Explanation
    An airplane is faster than a bicycle because airplanes are designed to travel at high speeds and cover long distances in a short amount of time. This sentence is comparing 2 objects; when this occurs, we use the comparative adjectives. When the adjective is one syllable, we add -er to the end of the word.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Ice is colder than rain because ice is a solid state of water and has a lower temperature than liquid water, which is what rain is. We would not say “more cold” because “cold is one syllable, so we add -er to the end of the comparative adjective.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a giraffe's neck is actually longer than an elephant's neck. Giraffes have long necks that can reach up to 6 feet in length, while elephants have relatively shorter necks in comparison. We are comparing the length of necks of the animals so we use the comparative form of the adjective. “Short” is one syllable, so we add -er to the end of the word.

      A cheetah is faster than a rabbit.         Is this TRUE or FALSE?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "A cheetah is faster than a rabbit" is true. Cheetahs are known to be the fastest land animals, capable of reaching speeds up to 70 mph in short bursts. On the other hand, rabbits are not known for their speed and typically have a top speed of around 30 mph. Therefore, the cheetah is indeed faster than a rabbit. We use “faster” in this sentence because “fast” is one syllable, so we can add -er to the end of the word to show the comparison.
