Which are correct:

1-You are better than him and you know it. You are better than him exactly to extent that you think you are better than him.

2-You are better than him and you know it. You are better than him exactly to extent that you think.

3-You are better than him and you know it. You are better than him as much as you think you are better than him.

4-You are better than him and you know it. You are better than him as much as you think.

5-You are better than him and you know it. You are as much better than him as you think.

None of these.

You are better than him and you know it means that you can have confidence in your skills/knowledge/whatever makes you better. There's no comparison.

"You are better than him and you know it" usually means "you are at a higher level than he is (intellectually, emotionally, educationally, financially, socially, etc) and you should (or better) realize that."
