Measurement

Tall-Short

To describe the objects based on their heights, we use the words tall and short.


Example:

G1_1_Tall&Short_Zoo

In the given picture, the height of the giraffe is more, and the height of the deer is less. So, the giraffe is tall and the deer is short.

  • We do not use the word ‘Tall or Short’ to compare two or more heights.
  • To compare two or more heights, we use the words, taller, shorter, tallest, and shortest.

Taller-Shorter


To compare heights of two objects, use the word ‘Taller/Shorter’.
