In the name of the Merciful Allah,
Hi, is this sentence right: "The more he is good the earlier he can leave"? Please, help. Thanks in advance.
So, it could be: the better he is, the earlier he can leave.
Not really - if you call someone 'better' you usually mean a better person - not a better-behaved person. Most teachers would say either of these:
- The better-behaved he is, the earlier he can leave.
- The better his behaviour, the earlier he can leave.
Some teachers would say something like 'Well I can stay here all night...'
Why can't I say : the better his behavior is, the...?
You can. In fact my impression is that my omission of "is" (in 'the better his behaviour') is rather old-fashioned.
