Superlative Degree
– Superlative degree is used when we compare among the three person or things and when we talks about the last degree ,like if we say (he is the best) so best is the superlative degree here and this tell about the highest degree means no one is higher than him .

Absolute Superlative
- Some time there is no comparison we only describe a highest quality of ant thing with the help of most and we emphasis on the highest quality
