Grammar for IELTS

We use SUPERLATIVE forms to compare three or more people or things. Examples include ‘the biggest’, ‘the most incredible’ and ‘the best’. We can make SUPERLATIVES more complex when we refer to the group of things or people which are ‘the biggest’, ‘the most incredible’ and ‘the best’. This can impress the IELTS examiner.
