I have another question. Would someone help me?

Do you use (a) and (b) interchangeably?
(a) I like summer better than winter.
(b) I like summer more than winter.

Thanks in advance.

To me they are interchangeable, as near as makes no difference.

I think you could possibly make a pedantic case that "more" is technically preferable, but most people wouldn't care.

Thank you for your help, eeky, clarkH, and morningmusubi.

Then how about these? Are they interchangeable, too?
(c) I like summer best of all the seasons.
(d) I like summer most of all the seasons.

Yes, they're also interchangeable. Exact same meaning, and they sound quite natural.
