Best answer

Due to “than” we need a comparative form here. But options A, B and C are comparative forms while option D is wrong usage as “faster” itself is comparative and so “more faster” is needless.

Now we have to see what is being compared. The comparison is with “accurate.” So, it should be either “more fast” or “less fast”. Since “accuracy” is a positive point, it should be “more fast” as “more fast” is expected to be better from a “fast bowler”.

PS: The following usage is correct because there we are comparing Archer with Bumrah.

Jofra Archer, the England fast bowler, is faster than Bumrah.

Correct Answer: A.
