DID YOU KNOW THAT
If someone borrowed a loaf of bread, he may repay his friend with a different loaf, even if the loaf is slightly larger. This leniency applies only where the size difference is insignificant.
However, if he borrowed a number of items (such as six eggs), he may return only the number that was borrowed.
