Transcript of degrees of comparison

degrees of quality, quantity, or value.
There are three different forms
to show degrees of comparison –
POSITIVE, COMPARATIVE, and SUPERLATIVE degrees. The comparative degree is used
when two persons or things are being compared. Comparative Degree Superlative Degree When an adjective is in its
simplest form,
it is in its positive form. Positive Degree Degrees of Comparison Positive Comparative Superlative
