    error

    I have recently given an exam in which sentence correction was asked and I am giving here one sentence.Please note that no context was provided 1 This watch is superior and more expensive than that one. I think that it may be 2 This watch is superior and more expensive than that. 3 This watch is superior and more expensive than that watch. 4 This watch is superior to and more expensive than that one. Can you tell me the exact error and its correction and please the correct sentence. You may point out any error which I missed. I would be very thankful to you

    "4 This watch is superior to and more expensive than that one." This one is correct, can you see why?

    1 This watch is superior and more expensive than that one. OK
    2 This watch is superior and more expensive than that No, there is nothing to compare it with.
    3 This watch is superior and more expensive than that watch. OK
    4 This watch is superior to, and more expensive, than that one. OK, with commas.
