  1. You may have visited more places in China than me.
  2. You may have visited more places in China than I did.
  3. Or neither above is correct. Then what's the correct sentence?

1 Answer 1

1

In casual conversation, most people will say "You did this more than me..."

The grammatically correct form is this: "You have visited more places in China than I have."

The word "have" can be left off the end.

  • It is accepted by many grammarians that 'You have done more than me' is the preferred and hence grammatical form nowadays. This has already been discussed in a duplicate, I can run faster than him/he. Supporting evidence, as ELU virtually requires, is given there. Jul 7, 2017 at 23:10
  • Also, both options you listed at the top in your question are correct. Well, let me edit this. If we are being nit picky it's really only option 1 and we would change option 2 to end with "I have".
