    Re: Then\Than

    Than is correct. Than refers to the comparison of a noun, in your case yours comparing his.

    Re: Then\Than

    It`s bigger than his.

    Than is a conjunction [ used in the comparative degree of adjectives ] and then is an adverb of time meaning at that time.

    Re: Then\Than

    the major use of than is to compare between things

    while then is used for time

    (than is the suitable answer )

    Re: Then\Than

    i found this while browsing wsu.edu about recent topic :

    When comparing one thing with another you may find that one is more appealing “than” another. “Than” is the word you want when doing comparisons. But if you are talking about time, choose “then“: “First you separate the eggs; then you beat the whites.” Alexis is smarter than I, not “then I.”

    according to this article,i'd rather choose 'than' than "then"......lol...
