Hi!! foreros!

I have a question with the adverb which's the correct one? why?

He's quite / slightly older than me.

Thanks a lot!

    They're both correct, but mean opposite things:

    He's quite older than me. >> e.g. I'm 20; he's 60.
    He's slightly older than me. >> e.g. We're both 20, but he was born in April and I was born in May.
