 The Quiz is: Mbah is the ... amongst the two players. English Quiz: Mbah is the ... amongst the two players


A, Better

B, Best 

C, Good.

This is an GCE Ordinary level English MCQS question. If you are not careful, you will came out of the examination hall hitting your chest that " I answered with using my left hand" 



Answer


If you use "C" good, it will be as thus:

Mbah is the "good" amongst the two players.

This option is wrong because good  is used to compare just one thing. For example; A good boy.



If you use "B" best, it will be as thus: Mbah is the best amongst the two players, this is wrong because best is used when three or more things are compared. For example; Mbah is the best amongst the five players.



If you use "A" better, it sounds wrong but it's the correct answer. This is because" better" is used to compare two things. For example Mbah is the better amongst the two players, I am better than You, Etoo is the better amongst the two players etc.

The key word in this quiz is "Two" which means comparing two players and not comparing the whole team.



Conclusion


English at times sounds funny when you use it correctly, many of us always speak wrong English just because it sounds better in our eyes. When it comes to the written part, you need to apply just the correct one else you will
