Which of the following is ok and sounds kind of natural ??

1- It has a quality higher than usual.

2- It has a higher quality than usual.

3- It has a quality higher than usual.

4- It has a higher than usual quality.

  • (2) is best, because high quality is a set phrase, though we would usually say 'It is of a higher quality'. – Kate Bunting May 3 at 15:27

    I said it was the best, not the only correct one or the most commonly used! If one had been completely wrong, I would have said so. – Kate Bunting May 5 at 16:19
