  • DEGREES OF COMPARISON www.learninglinksindia.org
  • Degrees of Comparison Are used when we compare one person or one thing with another. There are three Degrees of Comparison in English. They are: 1. Positive degree. 2. Comparative degree. 3. Superlative degree. 3 www.learninglinksindia.org
  • Let us see all of them one by one. 1. Positive degree. When we speak about only one person or thing, We use the Positive degree. Examples: • This house is big. In this sentence only one noun “The house” is talked about. • He is a tall student. • This flower is beautiful. • He is an intelligent boy. Each sentence mentioned above talks about only one noun. 4 www.learninglinksindia.org
  • 2. Comparative degree. When we compare two persons or two things with each other, We use both the Positive degree and Comparative degree. Examples: A horse can run faster than a dog. 5 www.learninglinksindia.org
  • 3. Superlative degree: When we compare more than two persons or things with one another, We use all the three Positive, Comparative and Superlative degrees. Examples: The elephant is the largest of all land animals. The giraffe is the tallest of all animals. 6 www.learninglinksindia.org
  • Few adjectives and adverbs get their Comparative forms by simply getting “more” before them. Beautiful..........more beautiful..........most beautiful Effective……….more effective………most effective Effectively………more effectively……….most effectively Enjoyable………….more enjoyable……….most enjoyable Useful……………….more useful………..most useful 7 www.learninglinksindia.org
  • Few adjectives and adverbs get their Comparative forms by simply adding “er” after them and their superlative terms, by adding “est” after them. Hard……………..harder……………..hardest Big……………….bigger…………….biggest Tall……………..taller……………tallest Long………………longer………………longest Short……………..shorter……………….shortest Costly…………………costlier……………costliest 8 www.learninglinksindia.org
