    a few/several

    I often meet these two and don't know the difference as they seem almost identical. I intuitively feel that a few is 2 or 3 whereas in my mind several is associated with 7 or 8.

    Can you please explain this

    TIA

    Re: a few/several

    Their meaning is not exact, I would agree that 'a few' means less than 'several'.
