    healthier and safer

    Hello,
    Could you, please, help me?

    Driving by bike is safer than driving by motorbike, but driving by car is the safest. Are safer and the safest adjectives ? The comparative and superlative form of the adjective safe?

    He drove safely, Anna drove more safely but Mark drove the most safely of all? Are safely, more safely and the most safely adverbs? The comparative and superlative form of the adverb safe?

    Is healthy an adverb and adjective?

    Travelling by car is healthier than by bike but travelling by train is the healthiest - are healthier and the healthiest comparative forms of the adjective healthy?

    He eats healthily than you but I eat the healthiest - are healthily, and healthiest the comparative and superlative form of the adverb safe?

    thank you

    No, it is only an adjective.

    The sentence is grammatical, but this is not a natural use of the adjective "healthy."

    "Healthier" is the comparative form, and "healthiest" is the superlative form of the adjective "healthy."

    The comparative and superlative forms of the adverb "healthily" would be "more healthily" and "most healthily" respectively.

    In my experience, "healthily" is not a commonly used adverb.
