Question about degreesof comparison
Which of the following is/are true?and why?
1) he is more wiser than his brother
2) he is wiser than his brother 3) he is more wise than his brother pls explain
There are three forms of adjectives: absolute (wise), comparative (wiser), and superlative (wisest). You can also use the adverbs 'more' and 'most' in place of the last two. What you can't do is to combine the adverb with the comparative or superlative - 'more wiser' or 'most wisest'.
Numbers 2 and 3 are correct, but number 1 is wrong.
