    You try first. Which do you think cannot be used in a comparative form. Someone can clearly be more cheerful than another person. What about the others?

    Please give the answer. I have to ask some more adjectives as well. I have gathered 250 common adjectives, almost 40% of them are either Extreme or those which are made with More & Most, so I have to find out there correct degrees.

    Regards

    All of your examples require 'more' or 'most'. There are guidelines for this, which you could apply, and then post your answers.
    I agree that it's not unreasonable for you to show that you've put some effort into these things before you post them.
