    better than

    What is correct?
    1. I know for sure you can do better than us.
    2. I know for sure you can do better than ours.

    I guess sentence number two is correct but I may be wrong.

    Re: better than

    "I know for sure your father can do better than ours(=our father)." makes sense, for example.
