Hello,

We know that "far," an adverb, can be used to modify comparative adjectives or adverbs, as in "I can run far faster than he."
But, in the sentence, "We perceive far less of the world than we think we do." "less" here is a pronoun, so....does that mean "far" become an adjective???

Thanks for responding to my question!!

I don't understand why you think "less" is a pronoun.
