I believe I was lucky enough to find such a pertinent segment to practice double comparatives, a grammar point we often have to teach, but I had never managed to find the right scene. The movie is sensational! I strongly recommend it.
Double comparatives are used to describe a cause-and-effect process. Remember: When BE is used in double comparatives, it is often omitted.
A. Before watching the segment, match the cause with its effect.
1. We ask the machine to make more food.
2. The machine emits more radiation.
3. We make bigger food.
( ) These molecules could over-mutate more.
( ) The food is better.
( ) The machine takes more clouds
B. Now connect both sentences, using double comparatives. Make all the necesary changes to make it correct. There are more than only one possible answers.
C. Now watch the segment and check your answers:
