b. Adverb Comparison Adverb comparison is used to compare how something is done between someone and another one or between someone in a group with others in his or her group.

The smart students listen to the teachers more seriously than the lazy students.

They type more neatly than us since they are more skillful than us.

This machine operates more quickly than that.
