    as a lower intensity

    Dear teachers,

    What does the underline part mean in the following sentence?

    The obese children also classed sweet tastes as a much lower intensity than other normal children.

    Thanks.

    The children were asked to taste different flavours and then class them by their intensity. Non-obese children classed the flavour of the sweet foods as something like "intense" or "very intense". However, the obese children classed the sweet foods lower down the scale, perhaps "only a little intense" or "not intense at all".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
