In the above sentence do I have to repeat "performance" for right comparison or ellipsis is ok?

thanks

OA:A

Hi nusmavrik,

Absolutely-- the ellipsis (the word that you don't have to repeat) in a comparison is the verb of comparison, not the item of comparison.

Ex. Correct: Tom eats burgers faster than Joe (eats burgers).--> Comparing Tom with Joe is logical.

Incorrect: Tom eats burgers faster than lightening (eats burgers?).--> Comparing Tom with lightening is not logical.

The performance of this car is better (i.e. more good) than your car (is good).--> Comparing the performance to a car is illogical.

Best,
Sarai
