In Chinese, adjectives are used to describe people and situations directly as predicate.
我很好。 wǒ hěn hǎo. I’m fine.
你很漂亮。 nǐ hěn piàoliang. You are pretty.
However, when an adjective is used by itself, it also has the implication of comparing.
他好还是你好？ tā hǎo háishì nǐ hǎo? Who is better, he or you?
我好。 wǒ hǎo. I’m better.
