    Smile A big accident is as much severe as a small one. The rider inevitably fall off.

    Hello everyone,

    I want an alternative to small, big and severe in this sentence.

    A big accident is as much severe as a small one. The rider inevitably fall off. It's about bicycles.
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    Default Re: A big accident is as much severe as a small one. The rider inevitably fall off.

    Your first sentence has a logic problem. A big accident is ovbviously more severe than a small one.
    Better (with word substitutions) would be: A minor accident can be as devastating as a major one. The rider inevitably falls off. It's all about bicycles.
