## Abstract

We show that there exists a real α such that, for all reals β, if α is linear reducible to β (α≤ℓβ, previously denoted as α≤swβ) then β≤Tα. In fact, every random real satisfies this quasi-maximality property. As a corollary we may conclude that there exists no ℓ-complete Δ2 real. Upon realizing that quasi-maximality does not characterize the random reals–there exist reals which are not random but which are of quasi-maximal ℓ-degree – it is then natural to ask whether maximality could provide such a characterization. Such hopes, however, are in vain since no real is of maximal ℓ-degree.
