    Question Grammar

    Dear teacher,

    can you clarify for me if the following sentence is grammatically chaste.

    IBM is one of the biggest IT companies

    or

    IBM is one of the bigger IT companies

    Thanking you,
    antony

    Re: Grammar

    They are both OK, but with a company that isn't just above average, but right at the top, then 'biggest' makes more sense, IMO, so I'd use it here.
