    comparative question

    Hello, teachers:

    I saw a question in a test.
    Tom is _____ in this club.
    (A) richer than any other man
    (B) richest than any other man
    (C) rich than any other man
    (D) richer than everyone

    The answer is A.
    My question is why the answer (D) is not right.
    I don't get it.
    Could you please explain it ?
    Thanks a lot!
