Ok... so let's just start things off by crossing off B -- funner -- twice for good measure.
Now... how do you use the word fun?
Well, the question is a COMPARISON... so: Is "dance" amount of fun greater than
or equal to "stay home and watch television" amount of fun?
It's just comparing one thing with another... only TWO items are involved -- so there can't
be a MOST.
"Most" is for threesomes. Uh... like if the options were dance, stay home or shop
for iPhone covers at the mall.
C is plain old "fun." Say it aloud: "was much fun than staying home..." Doesn't
sound right at all, does it?
This sentence is a comparison, and fun doesn't compare levels of fun... it just is.
So we're looking for MORE fun. Answer A.
As in, "Amusement park."
