I was reading an English book. This is a snippet of a conversation below:
But please tell us... do you like your job? Are you happier?
I am confused at happier. Why not use happy?
The person who said this was comparing the present job with the previous job.
He is saying, "Are you happier with this job, than your other job?"
They could also use happy, that is also correct. But it would mean a different thing.
It would just mean "Are you happy with this job", but it wouldn't compare it with his previous job.
