    Smaller reason?

    Which one do you like best?

    1) No lesser reason could have been given.
    2) No smaller reason could have been given.

    Re: Smaller reason?

    It depends what you want to say- the first could mean that they gave a substantial reason because it was impossible under the circumstances to give a smaller reason.

    Re: Smaller reason?

    I see. So, what does the second mean? How does it differ from the first?
