I put 'my mom is much younger than yours', even though the word bank doesn't show 'much' for 'mas'. I was marked wrong. How is that wrong? Reported.

joven is young and más joven is younger. Much younger would be mucho más joven.

Is the La mandatory? Does tuya by itself not mean yours?

Ok, so to clarify, from what I understand 'Mi mamá es más joven que la tuya' would translate to 'My mom is younger than your mom' and 'Mi mamá es más joven que tuya' to 'My mom is younger than yours'. Would this be right?

No.

«Mi mamá es más joven que la tuya» == "My mom is younger than yours".

«Mi mamá es más joven que tu* mamá» == "My mom is younger than your mom".

  • Without the tilde, "tu" becomes a possesive pronoun (your).
