Adjectives are words that are used to describe the noun. Now, let's take a look at comparison adjectives. Adjectives change in "form" show comparison.
Positive adjectives are adjectives in a simple form, and they do not express any comparison.
Comparative adjectives are used to compare two objects/persons.
Superlative adjectives are used to compare more than two objects/persons.
Consider the following:
1. John is a strong man.
2. David is stronger than John.
3. Martin is the strongest of all the three men.
Statement 1 shows that John is strong - this is called Positive degree
Statement 2 brings in a comparison standard to show David is stronger - this is called Comparative degree
Statement 3 brings about a comparison to say that Martin is the strongest - this is called Superlative degree
The superlative degree can also be used when there is no comparison. For example, I'm the most fortunate person today! It simply means the quality of a high degree.
