I wanted to know if there any single word that replaces "the smallest one", like minor or tiny or some words like that. And the replacement should be a noun.
I need a noun that expresses the minimality of something, it might not be the smallest, it could be the youngest or the lowest etc. but it should be noun.
Or let's say that we have set of elements those have size and could be measured, and there should be a noun that expresses the smallest element of this set.
Like rookie is at the bottom of the army (the smallest) and the general is at the top of the army or policy (the highest or the biggest one). But in this example rookie has not size its measurement mostly depends on an experience or things like that.
