English Language Exercise – The More, The Less

All of our actions have consequences, sometimes we just need to understand what exactly those consequences are! Today’s English language quiz is all about analyzing the pros and cons regarding what will happen if you do more or less of something.

Some of the constructions are quite easy, as you simply have to put “the more” or “the less” and you’re good to go. But watch out! The comparative in English plays a fundamental role in this exercise. If you want to say “If I go fast, I finish work,” then in this exercise you should say “The faster I go, the sooner I finish work.” This means you need to decide between more + adjective or adjective+more.
