reasonable is a synonym of logical

adjective [ ree-zuh-nuh-buhl, reez-nuh- ]

reasonable is another word for logical

Logical describes something that agrees with or behaves according to logic (a logical argument).

Reasonable describes something that suggests good judgment and reasoning (a reasonable choice for dinner). It can also describe something that’s realistic, fair, and not excessive.

Logical and reasonable are pretty close. However, emotional and social context can be included in a reasonable decision making process, but less so in a logical decision making process (He’s the logical decision to be the leader, but I’m concerned about his health).

Reasonable can suggest that you’re responding to people’s needs and demands in a way that logical doesn’t (She was reasonable in her requests of her employees).
