Transformation of Degrees -Rule-3

Transformation of degrees have many rules but I have discussed here 4 rules and by this, you will get the complete idea for changing degrees. Here is all about rule-3 of changing degrees.

Note:1 Structure of changing rule degrees

Rule Positive Comparative Superlative
Rule-1 No other sentence-এর শুরুতে বসবে Than any other এর মাঝে বসবে The + superlative degree বসে
Rule-2 Very few sentence-এর শুরুতে বসবে    Than most other, sentence-এর মাঝে বসবে One of the + superlative degree বসে
Rule-3 as………….as
not more—–than
not less ———–than—–
—— not ——-than
Rule-4 As soon as……., …………… No sooner had……….than…. x

Note -2 : Rule-1  এবং Rule-2 থেকে Rule-3  একদমই আলাদা/ভিন্ন । কারন Rule-1  এবং Rule-2 এ Positive করার জন্য No other বা very few দিয়ে sentence শুরু করতে হয় । Rule-3 তে এগুলির দরকার নেই । আবার Rule-1  এবং Rule-2 তে Comparative করার সময় Than any other বা than most other ব্যবহার করতে হয় যা Rule-3 তে প্রয়োগ নেই ।যেমন-

Positive to Comparative/ Comparative  to Positive

SL Positive Comparative
a Meghla is as tall as Arpa Arpa is not taller than Meghla
b Ridika is not as brilliant as Nasrin Nasrin is more brilliant than Ridika
c Example is better than precept. Precept is not as good as example.


Positive এবং Comparative degree তে Rule:3 এর sentence গুলি ২ ধরনের হয়ে থাকে ।
