MGMAT SC Guide says "Do not use a comparative adjective unless you have a than in the sentence". (Page 131, 5th ed.)

How about the following sentence:

Compared with last year's, this year's growth rate is higher.

Is this sentence incorrect? It has a comparative adjective - higher - but no than.

The sentence is correct.

Since we are using 'comapred with' no need of than here.

You will need than if you re-phrase the sentence as "this year's growth rate is higher than that of last year's"
