    no more...than

    Dear teachers,
    I have one question to ask:
    Could you please see if my explanations are correct or not?
    1. You are not more careful than he is.
    You are less careful than he is.
    2. You are no more careful than he is.
    Both of you are careless.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.
    Jiang

    1. You are not more careful than he is.
    You are less careful than he is.
    Less or equal, though in most cases it would probably imply less
    2. You are no more careful than he is.
    Both of you are careless.
    Usually it would, but it could also be used when both are exceptionally careful, but equally so.
