A
B
C
D
E

Difficulty:

(N/A)

Question Stats:

100% (01:37) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 2 sessions
In the attached question I have a doubt.

As we know , few is used for countable and less for non-countable.
But in what sense is "small" is used ?

IF there would have been an option as:

"a smaller commitment to work and a career than their grandparents and parents had"

Will it be also correct ?

I think you can eliminate A,B, and C right away because they don't end in 'had'. Therefore, by eliminating E as well because 'a lessining' doesn't flow correctly, you arrive at D. IMO, use smaller just like you would use few, when the amount is countable.

Commitment is not measurable, hence use less. Also had is required at the end of the sentence to maintain parallelism.
