EXPLANATIONS TO SOME ASSORTED EXAMPLES ON DEGREES

1. We change no one into no other because positive degree starts with no other.

As,
No one girl is as tall as Sita. —wrong
No other girl is as tall as Sita. —correct

2. We change better and more intelligent into more intelligent and better. Always use first double syllables adjective then one syllable adjective.

As,
Sham is more handsome and taller.

3. We replace  greater leaders by greater leader because, if not —comp. is followed, by singular noun.

As,
Ram is greater if not greater boys. —wrong
Ram is greater if not greater boy. —correct

4. We replace the most supreme by the supreme because, we never put more or most before unique, supreme, absolute etc.

As,
The king is the most absolute existence. —wrong
The king is the absolute existence. —correct

5. We should use simplest at the place of simple because the same form of degree is used before and after and.
As,
He is the best and bravest boy.
