Example Question #1 : Comparative And Superlative Adjectives In Spanish

Fill in the blank with the correct answer. 

Esta cama es __________ que esa cama. 

Possible Answers:

peora

más mal

más peor

la peor

peor

Correct answer:

peor

Explanation:

The correct answer is "peor." "Peor" is the comparative version of the adjective "mal," so "más mal" and "más peor" cannot exist in Spanish. Likewise because of the context, "la peor;" "the worst" cannot be used in a comparison, only as a superlative. "Peor" is an adjective that does not change based on gender, so "peora" is also wrong.
