"Although it is convenient to live in the city, it is also more expensive."


November 21, 2017



As it currently stands, the English doesn't say that it's more convenient to live in the city, only that it's convenient. It should therefore be acceptable to leave out the first 比较.


Chinese predicate adjectives often require some kind of modifier, such as 很, 太, or 比较. Haven't you been marked wrong yet anywhere else because you forgot to put one in?
