    Re: Adjectives

    Of the three men, Jake is the____
    a. handsomest
    b. handsomer
    c. more handsome
    d. most handsome


    a. and d. are both correct.


    The book is ____than the other book I read
    a. more interesting
    b. more good
    c. most better
    d. most interesting
    Yes, only a. is correct here.

    The dog ate its food__
    a. greedy
    b. greedily
    c. more greedy
    d. quick
    Yes, b. is correct. Some people will say d. in everyday conversation, however.

    the sailor is___than the rest of his crew.
    a. more skilled
    b. skillfully
    c.skillful
    d. most skilled
    a. is correct because of the word "than". "Most skilled than" would be incorrect.

    Re: Adjectives

    I thought the answer for the last question is d because it compares more than 2.

    Thanks again :)
