    what is better in children

    Are these sentences correct:
    1) What is better in children than in adults?
    2) In children, what is better than in adults?


    One could say that the capacity to learn languages is better in children than in adults. That would be one possible answer. I am sure one could make a long list.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: what is better in children

    I don't really like the use of "better in XXX than YYY" in this context. Given your suggested answer, I would prefer something like "What are children better at than adults?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
