    'connecting' or 'making a connection with' appropriate explanations for 'relating'?

    Hi teachers,
    Could 'connecting' or 'making a connection with' be appropriate explanations for 'relating' in the following sentence?
    Relating the subject of the sentence to another person of your choice.

    Thanks in advance.

    It could. We'd need a full sentence to be sure.

    Hi,
    Change these sentences to two new sentences by using the correct comparative and superlative of the underlined adverb and relating the subject of the sentence to another person of your choice.

    From those instructions, I would assume I would seem something like
    Jim is tall.
    And my job would be to write "Bobby is taller than Jim, but Steve is the tallest of the three."

    However you use the word "adverb" instead of "adjective" so I don't know if you have made the mistake or I.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hi Barb,
    Thank you for your reply.
    The following sentences are part of the exercise:
    1. You have to study hard for your test.
    2. I got up late this morning.
    3. She works too slowly on the computer.
