What is the difference between "worse" and "worst"?

I'm confuse between the two. I know you guys probably thinking I'm dumb. but I just need some clarification.

Example: 98Degrees is worse than the Backstreet Boys, but OneDirection is the worst boyband ever.

worse is progressive like "things are getting worse"
worst is like a final statement like "this is the worst it will be"
as in "you are the worst at grammar"

Worse is a comparative. That means only using two things comparing to each other. Worst is a superlative,
For when you compare 3 or more things.
Ex: Emily's grade was worse than Adam's.(comparative)
But
Ex:Jonah's grade was the worst out of the whole class.(superlative)

"Worse" is what you say to compare two things.

"Worst" compares more than two things, and means "the absolute least good"

"worse" means less well or skillfully. "worst" means it is the baddest (excuse my poor english)

'worse' is the comparative degree of 'bad', while 'worst' is the superlative degree of 'bad' ...and no need to feel bad....even clever people don't know some small things..

Worse is used when comparing two things. Worst is used when comparing to everything in a category. He was worse than she was. He was the worst of all the performers.

great, good luck with that! Well, I am just 14 so I am kinda too young to date
Report as
Yeah when your 15 then there's a good time to date. But when I hit 15 I didn't even started dating yet. I wasn't ready for the responsibility of being in a relationship. So now I think I'm ready so im giving it a shot.
