    I like meat better than fish.

    Are all of these sentences correct?

    1: I like meat better than fish.
    2: I like meat more than fish.
    3: I like my younger sister much better than my two other sisters.
    3: I like my younger sister much more than my two other sisters.

    Can "better than" be used as a replcacement for "more than"?

    Re: I like meat better than fish.

    They are grammatical.

    Can "better than" be used as a replacement for "more than"?
    They can in these examples.

    Re: I like meat better than fish.

    How about I prefer meat to fish?
