Synonyms of "Brilliant" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre less than brilliant e less brilliant ?
A: "Less than brilliant" is calling someone/something stupid, without outright saying that they're stupid. (You can use this format in other ways too. "Well, that was less than ideal," is a very mild polite way of saying, "Well, fuck, that did not work at all.")

"Less brilliant" can be used as a comparison. ("I'm less brilliant than she is.") It sounds awkward, though. ("I'm not as smart as she is" would sound more natural.)

Q: Qual é a diferença entre "brilliant" e "great" e "fabulous" e "remarkable" e "marvellous" ?
A: I would use Brilliant to describe something even a bit better than Great. Brilliant to me also suggests what you are describing is really ingenious or smart.
Fabulous is usually used more passionately like, 'Fabulous outfit!'. Remarkable would be used when something is not only great but also surprising, "Wow, it worked? Remarkable!". Marvellous isn't used that often, people usually use it to congratulate someone like "Marvellous work on that painting!" (I'm from Australia, but I'm sure these are the same as what is used in the U.K.)
Q: Qual é a diferença entre brilliant e smart ?
A: Wow, someone's smart!

She is absolutely brilliant!

smart: getting an A on a test

brilliant: someone that solves problems by thinking outside what's normal, is far better at something than most people, or an inventor.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre brilliant e sagacious ?
A: @Ri-na: Brilliant: Excellent, clever, marvellous
Sagacious: Wise, shrewd, showing good mental judgement

It's worth noting that I have never heard anybody use the word sagacious before, it is best reserved for formal writings, whereas "Brilliant!" can easily be an informal exclamation.
