Thank you very much dear teacher gerondif
I am sure of the answer it is comparative indeed, and I answered the question before I posted here.
The matter is sometimes that students or users in Facebook do not satisfy or feel astonished how to compare with two and it is still comparative and not a superlative. This is the matter.
It needs further explanation so that people could satisfy.
For me I know to compare with two or perhaps when the matter of comparing is between members of a family like to say brothers or sister = comparative Otherwise, perhaps the person or the thing who or which to compare with is one of the two.
