He is braver than most other boys in the school. (If I am asked to change the degree of comparison, I write the following:)

Ans. Very few boys are as brave as him in the school.

Is my answer grammatically correct? Please tell me soon. I know there can be a better alternative to this answer, but tell me if my answer is grammatically correct becuz in today's test I have put in an answer similar to this. Thanx!

I might have written 'he is one of the bravest boys in the school'. Yours seems OK though, too; a strict teacher might want he instead of him.

Please sir, I already know that there might be more alternatives to this but the question is "Whether I am grammatically right or wrong?" If I am grammatically correct, even the most strict teacher support my statement. Dont you think?

Please answer soon!! Thanx for the reply though Emotion: big smile

No, I don't. There is disagreement about many points of grammar.

Hey!! Please, we are straying from the point. I agree there is disagreement but what should I do to find whether mine is correct or not?
I have already answered that question, Ritwik: a strict teacher might want he instead of him. There is disagreement about whether him is correct; some grammarians say it is OK, others say it is not; it will depend on what your teacher thinks.

Very few boys are as brave as he in the school. Maybe!! My teacher is a stupid fellow. I know we must respect all our teachers but you know she always teaches us from guides and it doesnt seem to be + point for me. If the statement in her guide would match mine, she will give me but if it doesnt, sh wont. Thanx for helping!
Well!! Ineed opinions of some more people!!! Please do give me some!

Emotion: stick out tongue
