Please help me to correct "She moved to a job with a higher salary." She moved to a job with a higher salary. Here, this sentence has used the word "higher" without "than". but this is a complete sentence. That means can we use comparative adjective without comparison?. Are these sentence correct for formal writing? She is more beautiful. She is taller.

This statement is correct, but we usually only say things such as this when we are speaking casually. If i were to ask you, "Where did she move?" And you responded with this answer then this would be correct. BUT if you were writing a paper or speaking to someone professionally you would use a more complete sentence: "She moved to a job with a higher salary than she used to make." Or if we were casually talking and i asked "who do you think is taller?" And you said "she is taller" after i had just mentioned the said person then this would also be correct. These phrases really just depend on the context of the situation.
