    Default more intelligent and kind

    1-He is a more intelligent and kind man.
    2-We need a more intelligent and kind man.

    Do these mean:
    a- a man who is more intelligent and also kind
    or:
    b- a man who is more intelligent and also kinder?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Default Re: more intelligent and kind

    The 'more' probably applies to both words. If it didn't, we'd write 'a kind and more intelligent man'.
