    Hi, I'm not sure how to use the more,,, the more,,, So, I made some sentences , Would you help me how to say this naturally please?

    A: I want to open term deposit account.
    B: ok, how long do you want to put?
    A: ⓐ As term longer, interest gets higher?
    ⓑ The longer term, the higher interest it will be?
    B: Yes, 6 months interest is higher than 3months.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    A: you can leave the hospital now.
    B: I want to stay longer, it would be helpful to my health.
    A: ⓐ No, ití not necessarily as you stay longer, your health get better.
    ⓑ Sometimes, the longer you stay, the worse it could be.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    A: Iím hopeless with this subject. Iím almost gave up.

    (I am not a teacher)

    A: ⓐ As term longer, interest gets higher?
    ⓑ The longer term, the higher interest it will be?

    I would say "The longer the term, the higher the interest will be?"

    A: ⓐ No, ití not necessarily as you stay longer, your health get better.
    ⓑ Sometimes, the longer you stay, the worse it could be.

    I would say "No, it's not necessarily the longer you stay, the better your health will get. Sometimes, the longer you stay, the worse it can get!"

    ("I'm almost gave up" - it's better to say "I've almost given up")

    B: ⓐ As you read more, it will be easier. So try not to give up.
    ⓑ The more you read, the easier it will be.

    The second one is correct: "The more you read, the easier it will be."
