Abstract: We prove that the non-linear quasi-periodically forced harmonic oscillator with two frequencies $ (1,\alpha )$ has at least one response solution if the forcing is small. No arithmetic condition on the frequency is assumed and the smallness of the non-linear forcing does not depend on $ \alpha $. The result strengthens the existing results in the literature where the frequency is assumed to be Diophantine. The proof is based on a modified KAM theory for the lower dimensional tori.
