# Vev's in Beyond the Standard Model

Recently, I read a paper, the authors have mentioned that if we have $$n$$ stand for VEVs which are singlets of the SM gauge group, $$k$$ are associated with SM doublets, and $$S$$ is the VEV of the SM triplet. In principle one can expects that $$S\ll k\ll n$$. I do not understand why $$S\ll k\ll n$$?
