What's the rule? Try to find out how superlatives are formed.
 
  •  To form the superlative of an adjective, you add 
     to the end of the adjective. Adjectives like heavy, that end with "-y", need an additional "-iest" at the end. The 
     turns into an "-i". Be careful, there are some exceptions to the rule e.g. big -> biggest. The consonant "g" is doubled in this case.
     
 
 
Type in the superlatives of the following adjectives. For example: The superlative of "long" is "longest".
