I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'some deficiency apparently' is the definition.

(Other definitions for unequal that I've seen before include "More or less" , "at different levels" , "Not evenly balanced" , "Not identical" , "Varying" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
