a. Which is a harder sport tennis or badminton?
b. Which is worse illegal music download or smoking indoor.
c. Which is a more serious stress which might cause death or stress which is due to somebody's smoking.
Simply, they are incomparable. Since they have no elements to compare with.
How do you count difficulty of the two sports?
How do you decide badness of the two misconduct?
How do you recognise severeness of the two effect?
