Hello!

I report a sentence:

"The higher is the number of connections to a town, the much larger is the traffic per connection handled"

Does this sentence make sentence to you? Is it gramatically correct?



Thanks!
Simon

    Hello GEmatt,

    Thank you for your answer!

    Could you explain me why the first sentence is wrong?

    Simon,

    I found a link for you, containing several example sentences (scroll down to "the bigger the better"). Have a look at how they are constructed, and where the verbs are placed...and just put your hand up if you have any more questions.;)

    Hope it helps,
    GEmatt

    Thanks Gematts,

    from that website i found a sentence to understand your corrected version:

    "The brighter its colour, the more poisonous it is."

    Many thanks !!!
