अपर्याप्तं तदस्माकं बलं भीष्माभिरक्षितम्।
पर्याप्तं त्विदमेतेषां बलं भीमाभिरक्षितम्।।1.10।।
।।1.10।।भीष्म के द्वारा हमारी रक्षित सेना अपर्याप्त है किन्तु भीम द्वारा रक्षित उनकी सेना पर्याप्त है अथवा भीष्म के द्वारा रक्षित हमारी सेना अपरिमित है किन्तु भीम के द्वारा रक्षित उनकी सेना परिमित ही है।
So it may also be put forth that if Duryodhana is so convinced of his superiority then why does he need to assure himself. In this verse although he states his army is unlimited by its tone it implies by his reply that the army of his with all the mighty heroes previously mentioned protected by Bhishma seems inadequate, whereas the army of the Pandavas which is protected by Bhima seems adequate to him.
