Abstract: Examples of $ {C^k}$-mappings $ f:{\mathbb{R}^n} \to {\mathbb{R}^m},n \geq m > 2$, are given, with rank $ df(x) \leq s$ at any $ x \in {\mathbb{R}^n},2 \leq s < m$, but $ f({\mathbb{R}^n}) = {\mathbb{R}^m}$, for any $ k < (n - s + 2)/(m - s + 2)$. Thus a weak form of Sard's theorem (if all the points in the source are critical, the image has measure zero) does not hold for mappings of low smoothness.
