    sentences

    I. "What a lovely dress, I can't take my eyes off it."
    II. "What a lovely dress, I can't take my eyes off."
    Which sentence is right?

    I. She is clever than us all.
    In this case, "than" is a conj. or prep.?

    Please.

    II. "What a lovely dress, I can't take my eyes off." You can take your shoes or your glasses off, but you can't take your eyes off.

    I. She is clever than us all. Say, 'She is (more clever)(cleverer) than us all.'
    Here "than" is a preposition.
    But in 'She is (more clever)(cleverer) than we all are.', "than" is a conjunction.
    Don't worry about this too much; it is not very important.
    In this case, "than" is a conj. or prep.?

    Please.
