1) Many people think television makes the news seem more real.
Correct. 'realer' would be something that a 3 year old child might say while he is still acquiring language skills
2) This makes the news about wars and crimes (seem) more terrible.
But it is said that the answer is that 'more terrible' is wrong.
I'd like to know why.
If it were wrong, then we would be saying, 'terribleer' -no such word!!
