Consider the following two boxes with the provided dimensions:

A:

- 10 inches long
- 10 inches wide
- 10 inches tall
B:

- 11 inches long
- 12 inches wide
- 13 inches tall
I wish to communicate the side differences between these two boxes. When comparing B to A, this is easy:

- B is 1 inch longer than A
- B is 2 inches wider than A
- B is 3 inches taller than A
However, when comparing A to B, these are the words I’ve come up with:

- A is 1 inch
shorterthan B- A is 2 inches narrower than B
- A is 3 inches
shorterthan BSpecifically, the word “shorter” seems to be the best fit for comparing both the length and the height of the two objects. Is there another word that I could use instead of one of these instances? If not, what is the best way to disambiguate whether I mean length or height?

**Answer**

To compare a cuboid in all three dimensions, you can use these three pairs

- taller/shorter
- wider/narrower
- deeper/shallower

So you could write *I prefer this closet for hanging clothes because, even though it is not as tall or as wide as the other, its greater depth gives each item more space.*
