Adverbs like adjectives can be compared. They have the same three degrees (1) positive - one thing or person, (2) comparative - two things or persons, and (3) superlative - more than two things or persons. Most adverbs formed from adjectives use more or most to express comparisons.

2. lazily, more lazily, most lazily
3. heavily, more heavily, most heavily
