    "By lift/stairs"; "fill vs fill in" ; comprison

    Hi guys

    I actually have a whole bunch of questions and I hope I will clarify my doubts here with you.
    So I know that you "take the lift" but how do you go to the next floor. By the lift?? Do you have an expression like that at all?

    What is the difference between "Fill" and "fill in" ?

    When you compare something, how do you say "in comparison to.." "comparing to.." Do you maybe "compare with" ???
    For example "This blouse is not nice (in comparison to/comparing to;with) another one that I saw yeasturday"

    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers!

    You go up to the next floor in the lift.

    Please ask your unrelated questions in separate threads.

    You go to the next floor by the stairs, or you take the stairs to the next floor.

    You can take the lift (elevator) to the next floor. Or you can take the stairs. Take one or the other. But usually not both.
