Does the following make sense?

"Nowadays, there are many more electronic pieces of equipment and devices than there used to be."

"I like the museum. It was more interesting than I expected to be.

"I like the museum. It was more interesting than I expected it to be.

"The more you are tired, the more mistakes you might make".

    Note that pieces of electronic equipment is far more idiomatic than electronic pieces of equipment, and your final example would usually be phrased as The more tired you are... You can't omit the pronoun it in your second example, but there's nothing wrong with the way you've used more + than in any of them. – FumbleFingers Apr 7 '17 at 18:05
  • "The {more people} are tired" vs "the {more tired} people are" is a slight difference ... with "you" the difference doesn't make sense, though. You seem to think "the {more {people are tired}}", which is kind of OK because this construction with "the <argument>, the <argument>" strikes me as colloquial, anyway, because there is no literal connective. But it's uncommon, indeed. – Hector von Apr 7 '17 at 18:44
  • @FumbleFingers I would generally agree but if the point is to emphasize that the equipment is electronic, then this order is actually better. There are more electronic pieces [rather than mechanical] of equipment. That's how I interpret that first one. – Catija Apr 7 '17 at 20:41
  • I'm sorry, Mickey Mouse but this looks like you're asking us to proofread these sentences for you - as such, it is at risk of being closed. I know that you have a specific thing you're focusing on (comparative forms) but we need more information, otherwise you're just asking us to tell you if they're correct or not. – Catija Apr 7 '17 at 20:43
