We use comparatives a lot when we are talking about differences between people, places, books music and so on. Here is an example:
"I can't believe John is Peter's brother. He is so much taller."
The most important thing to remember when thinking about comparatives is that usually we put ...er after the adjective to make the comparative (as in taller) and ...est to make the superlative as in this sentence: "He is the tallest person I have ever seen".
Of course there are some adjectives which are different - if there are two or more syllables we can't use that rule so we have to use more and most instead. And there is a spelling rule which you have to try to work out for yourself when you try the first exercise!
