What is a ‘naturally comparative’ adjective?
This question relates to:French lesson "Supérieur à, inférieur à, intérieur à, extérieur à (irregular comparatives)"

The usual way you form a comparative is with "plus" or "moins".
Il est plus âgé qu'elle. -- He is older than her.Marie parle le français moins couramment que moi. -- Marie speaks French less fluently than me.
Here is a link to the corresponding lesson: https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/making-comparisons-using-adjectives-plus-que-aussi-que-moins-que

I think what is meant is that 'supérieur' and 'inférieur' are comparative in themselves, so you would not say 'plus supérieur/inférieur à' , as with normal comparisons highlighted by Chris .
The important bit is that you use 'à' afterwards and not 'que'.
Hope this helps!
