look the more ~

Hi,

I have a question on the sentence below:

She looked the more qualified of the two candidates.

Is it okay to use ‘the’ (in bold)? I’m curious.

Thank you in advance,
sweetpumpkin

Yes, it is okay. You could say it in two ways:

  1. She looked the more qualified of the two candidates.
  2. She looked more qualified than the other candidate.
