I can't understand a single word written in this article. Is there an easy way to explain all of the above. This is quite confusing.

Hi jitendra31,

If none of this makes sense, you may not have come across the need for it yet! There is certainly no quick way to condense all those rules down. However, if you have a specific question, I'm sure plenty of us will be ready to help.

Hi Dmitry,

No, I have seen all of this before, but in a slightly more logical manner. I was questioning the way the article is written.

All - have a look at this (http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-compa ... -vs-fewer/). I think this link helps you explain more logically when to use greater than and others and why.

Thanks,
