Abstract: The main result of this article is Theorem 1 which states that a quotient space $ Y,\dim Y = k$, of a subspace of any finite dimensional normed space $ X$, may be chosen to be $ d$-isomorphic to a euclidean space even for $ k = [\lambda n]$ for any fixed $ \lambda < 1$ (and $ d$ depending on $ \lambda $ only).
