Comparatives and superlatives are special forms of adjectives which are used to compare two or more things.

• Comparatives: They are used to compare two things. We use than after comparative adjectives. With short adjectives you have to add –er whereas in long adjectives we have to add more + adjective.

E.g.: Mark is taller than Paul.
Helen is more intelligent than Mary.

• Superlatives: They are used to compare more than two things. It indicates that something has a greater degree than anything. Superlative sentences usually use THE, because there is only one superlative. Short adjectives are formed adding –est and long adjectives using the + most + adjective.

E.g.: George is the tallest in the class.
Mary is the most beautiful girl in the school.
