He is more good at English than at Mathematica
He is better at English than at Mathmatics
Are both senentences correct?
Thanks in advance
Hello,
He is better at English than at Mathematica.
That makes a sense to me.
Cheers,
Hi Jayan,
The comparative construction "more good" is not correct; the superlative construction "most good" would also be incorrect. What you really want is:
He is better at English than (at) mathematics. In fact, English is his best subject.Please note that the second "at," which is placed in parentheses in the example above, is really not necessary. (Though not entirely wrong, some might consider it "redundant," i.e., unnecessarily repetitive.)
Also, please note that English (a proper noun) must be capitalized (which you have done), mathematics (not a proper noun) should not be. Note that if "mathematics" became instead "Mathematics 101" (the title of a course and thus a proper noun) in the example above, it would be necessary to capitalize "Mathematics (101)."
Hello,
Mathematica is a proper noun as well.
Cheers,
