    simple/simplest/most simple

    Hi,
    Can I say the following:
    1. "This entrance is more narrow than that one."
    2. This task is more simple but that one but the last one is the most simple."

    or should it be:
    1. "This entrance is narrower than that one."
    2. This task is simpler but the last one is the the simplest."


    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    These are more natural.
