fractions are represented in form of decimals

No

Integers are positive and/or negative numbers. Fractions are not integers because they are not originally positive or negative. However, they can both be put on a number line and be considered an integer. Fractions aren't integers unless put on a number line. Integers don't have to be on a number line to be considered an integer.

by looking at the denominator

You draw each of the fractions on the number line, and see which one is more to the right, i.e., greater. Please note that plotting the exact position of fractions this way is a bit imprecise - it is more exact to convert the fractions to a common denominator.

by looking at the denominator

As the denominator increases the fraction will be smaller but there is no limit to how tiny that fraction can be. So between any two numbers on the number line, you can have an infinite number of fractions.
