about superlative and comparative degree usage
what is the superlative degree term for the word useful and quiet?
and when we should use the prefixes more and most while writing the comparative and superlative forms of the words
thin thinner thinnest
Here are 4 letters.so,Ithink the rule is this
If there is a,e,i,o,u at second last letter ,repeat the last constant letter and add er and est for comparative and superlative degree respectively
Also there is a word dry,old which have 3 letters.
Its degree is
positive comparative superlative
dry drier driest
old older oldest
So Ithink the given second rule is incorrect.
But there are many words that do not follows rule of a,e,i,o,u
Also about rule no. 1 tired 5letters comparative-more tired superlative most tired.
please tell me Iam right or wrong.

Most adjectives with two or more syllables are preceded by 'more' and 'most' at the comparative and superlative levels respectively. The following are examples: careful = more careful and most careful; intelligent = more intelligent and most intelligent.
