Double Superlative Example 1

What’s wrong with this sentence?

“You are the very bravest person I know.”

The superlative form of an adjective or adverb is used to describe a quality in the highest degree. A double superlative is formed when the superlative form is preceded by an adverb like very or most.

The quoted sentence has a double superlative because very precedes bravest. To correct the double superlative, remove the unnecessary adverb very.

You are the bravest person I know.
