Exercises for practising adjectives
The comparison of adjectives is used to compare the degree or qualities of two or more things. There are three forms of comparison: positive, comparative, and superlative.
Positive: The positive form of an adjective is the base form that is used to describe a quality without comparing it to anything else. For example: "She is tall."
Comparative: The comparative form is used to compare two things, indicating that one thing has a higher degree of the quality than the other. It can be formed by adding "-er" to the end of the adjective or by using the word "more" before the adjective. For example: "She is taller than her sister" or "She is more beautiful than her sister."
Superlative: The superlative form is used to describe the highest degree of a quality among a group of three or more things. It can be formed by adding "-est" to the end of the adjective or by using the words "most" before the adjective. For example: "She is the tallest person in the room" or "She is the most beautiful person in the room."
It's important to note that some adjectives have irregular comparatives and superlatives forms, such as "good" (comparative: "better", superlative: "best").
Adjectives and Adverbs
Adjectives and adverbs are two types of words used to describe or modify nouns and verbs.
Adjectives: Adjectives are words used to describe or modify nouns. They give more information about the noun, such as size, shape, color, or emotion. For example, in the sentence "The red car is fast," the adjective "red" describes the noun "car," and the adjective "fast" describes the verb "is."
Adverbs: Adverbs are words used to describe or modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs. They give more information about the action, quality, or degree of the verb, adjective, or adverb. For example, in the sentence "She sings beautifully," the adverb "beautifully" describes the verb "sings."
