6.more quickly

7.more beautiful

8.less generous

9.biggest

10.least closely

  • Adjectives and Adverbs -

    6 - correct

    7 - no because "beautiful" has 3 syllables.

    8 - no because "generous" has 3 syllables.

    9 - correct

    10 - incorrect; re-read the question

  • Adjectives and Adverbs -

    7.most safely

    8. least sweetly

    10.yellower

  • Adjectives and Adverbs -

    7 and 8 -- correct

    10 -- still needs re-thinking. Count syllables on each basic word:

    reckless
    close
    high
    yellow

    Now which ONE is two syllables AND has -er or -est as a suffix?

  • Adjectives and Adverbs -

    close

  • Adjectives and Adverbs -

    Sorry -- my last post was wrong.

    Which one has ONE syllable AND has -er or -est attached? Close is one syllable, but in that list does it have -er or -est attached?
