remotely, a little bit, a little, a bit
"If the student is even remotely/ a little bit/ a bit/ a little interested in the topic at hand, then the written response to that topic is bound to be more interesting."Which word is more common among remotely, a little bit, a little, a bit? And which word is suit for the sentence above?
Re: remotely, a little bit, a little, a bit
I would say that "a little bit", "a bit" and "a little" are the same. "Remotely interested" would mean having even the tiniest bit of interest which, in my opinion, would be smaller than "a little". I don't really have a favourite for the context of that sentence but if I had to choose one, it would be "remotely".
