4.

Answer: The most comfortable
Explanation:
The correct answer is "the most comfortable" because it is the superlative form of the adjective "comfortable." It is used to compare one thing (my room) to all the other rooms in the hotel and indicate that it is the most comfortable among them.
5.

You know, you have got __________ (nice) family.

Answer: The nicest
Explanation:
The correct answer is "the nicest." This is because the word "nice" is a one-syllable adjective, so to form the comparative degree, we add "-est" to the end of the word. Since "nice" ends in an “s” sound and ends in an “e” we just add -st to the end of the word.  However, in this sentence, we are comparing the family to all other families, so we need to use the superlative degree. To form the superlative degree, we add "the" before the comparative form, making it "the nicest."
6.

Answer: Funnier than
Explanation:

Answer: The easiest ... most interesting
Explanation:
The correct answer is "the easiest ... most interesting" because the sentence compares English to other subjects in terms of difficulty and interest. "Easiest" is the superlative form of "easy" and is used to compare English to all other subjects. "Most interesting" is the superlative form of "interesting" and is used to compare English to all other subjects as well.

Shane is undoubtedly __________ (intelligent) student in our class.

Answer: The most intelligent
Explanation:
In this sentence, the speaker is comparing Shane's intelligence to the other students in the class. The phrase "the most intelligent" is used to indicate that Shane is at the highest level of intelligence among all the students. The other options, "more intelligent," " and "more intelligent than," do not accurately convey the superlative form of intelligence that is being described in the sentence.
9.

Answer: More strict  ... unfriendlier than

The given answer "more strict  ... unfriendlier than" is correct because it correctly compares the level of strictness and unfriendliness between the Maths teacher and the Science teacher. The words "more strict " is the comparative form of "strict," indicating that the Maths teacher is more strict than the Science teacher. Similarly, "unfriendlier" is the comparative form of "unfriendly," suggesting that the Maths teacher is more unfriendly than the Science teacher. The use of the comparative form in both cases appropriately compares the two teachers' characteristics.
