    You can use both sentences, but they don't have the same meaning.

  • Yes, you can use either sentence pair. However, as nnnnnn pointed out, they have different meanings. The adverbs in example (1.) are comparative adverbs, some good examples of which can be found at this question: english.stackexchange.com/questions/94992/comparative-adverbs.
