    Question The difference between even better and better yet

    Hello
    Could you please tell me what the difference is between even better and better yet and in what cases should I use them?

    Another question: which question correct and why?
    Whom are you talking to? or Who are you talking to?

    They have a similar meaning, but only 'even better' can be used in comparisons with 'than'.

    I'd say:
    Who are you talking to?
    To whom are you talking? (formal)

    Whom are you talking to? - not wrong, but I don't like the use of 'whom' with the preposition at the end.
