    Question The wall of your house is bigger than mine

    Please make me clear here.

    Your house is bigger than mine.
    This is correct...
    But if I say..

    The wall of your house is bigger than mine.

    Is it right... ??? The second one. ??

    Yes, it's grammatical. It's not clear what you want it to mean, though.

    I don't see the sense in the sentence. There are more than one wall in a house surely.

    I would use 'is' instead of 'are' in the above post because 'more than one wall' is singular.
