The basic rules of forming comparatives: > One syllable words take "-er". Look at these examples: clear -> clearer, sweet -> sweeter > Multisyllable words take "more". Look at these examples: incredible -> more incredible (not "incredibler"), horrible -> more horrible (not "horribler") > Two-syllable words ending in consonant + y take "ier": Look at these examples: happy -> happier, pretty -> prettier Some words can take either -er or 'more': Both "more clear" and "clearer" are acceptable:

When we compare two things or person, we use "more" and "-er". EXAMPLES:- Neha is happier than Sima. Neha is more beautiful than Sima. Here we compare two persons (Neha and Sima) we use "More" or "-er". We use "more" in Multi syllable words. EXAMPLE :- Beautiful - more beautiful - most beautiful. We use "-er" in one syllable words. EXAMPLE :- Happy - happier - happiest So, I think clearer is correct and more clear is incorrect.

If an word has more than one syllable, we should use "more". Ex :- Beautiful - More Beautiful If an word has one syllable, we should use "-er". Ex :- Clear - Clearer So, Clear - Clearer - Clearest is correct.
