According to Grammarly, mistakes were made when comparing two of more things. Please help.
Taffe, Blachowicz, and Fisher (2009) highlighted an increased vocabulary disparity with English language learner students and among students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.

Lewis makes an excellent observation regarding something that Grammarly did not catch. What Grammarly did catch was the word "lower".
One of my peeves with the Grammarly service is that it wants a comparison such as "lower" to be completed within the sentence. Grammarly wants you to say something to the effect of "lower than ..." or to balance the lower with a higher ... in the same sentence. In this, Grammarly is following the advise of British English textbooks. In reality, such comparisons are often completed by the context -- the sentences before and after. I generally double check my sentence and then ignore Grammarly's complaint.
