Pls answer this qe about degrees of comparison
which of the following sentences is /are correct? 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
The answer hasn't changed since the last time you asked this question.
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.
