NO, but it could be ; " Can you give me a few more details / facts ? "

Hi,

'Particular' is more often used as an adjectives. It appears as a noun in the plural 'particulars' and is a word used for example by the police when they, as we say, take your particulars - your name and address for example.

Hi!
In this test we cannot use "fact" because it is said " a little more". Am I right?

Could you tell me, please, what difference is between "a little more detail" and "a few more details"?
Thank you in advance.

'Tell me in a little more detail' - tell me a little more about it by giving me more detail than you have already given.
'Give me a few more details' - tell me a little more about it by giving me some extra details. Often used for things where the details can be categorised separately -- such as place, date and time.
