Vacuum and kettle ??

Quel est le meilleur aspirateur? is a usage  ( non action )

where as Laquelle de ces bouilloires marche le mieux?  uses a verb action ?  i.e the kettle works  ?   

This question relates to:
French lesson "Meilleur, mieux, pire / plus mauvais, plus mal = better, best, worse and worst (irregular comparatives and superlatives)"

HI D,

If I have understood your question correctly, your query is why we use 'mieux' in the case of the kettle example?

'mieux' follows the verb marcher and is the comparative form of the adverb 'bien'.

bon ----meilleur

bien----mieux

e.g.

C'est une bonne bouilloire mais celle-ci marche mieux.

Hope this helps!
