Would you kindly tell me the meaning of "no little surprise"?
This is the situation:
The news of her marriage caused us no little surprise
A. We were not surprised when she married.
B. We knew she had married but were still surprised.
C. Her marriage did surprise us a little.
D. We were greatly surprised when we heard she had married. Thank you very much in advance

"Her marriage was no great surprise" means the opposite -- it was expected.
