I saw the above sentence from Longman Dictionary on my Phone. I don't know what faintest suspicion of a tear means.I could see the faintest suspicion of a tear in her eyes.
If that sentence is: I could see the suspicion in her eyes.
Then I can say that I understood.
Please help to explain the meaning of the original sentence.
See definition 4 below.
