    less of two evils


    Please let me know the meaning of the sentence as well as if the sentence is right

    Given the choice between being with rohit or manish the whole day, I suppose being with manish is the less of two evils.

    Please let me know the sentence mentioned below is right.

    The table's leg is broken.

    The car's headlight is broken.

    Kind Regards

    Re: less of two evils

    The expression is normally: The lesser of two evils.

    We normally refer to a table leg.
    Car headlights
    and car's headlights are both acceptable.
