Which fragment will require a higher agarose % in the gel?

The amount of agarose you use in a gel (the % of agarose per unit volume) depends on the size of the DNA fragments that you are trying to resolve. The higher the % of agarose, the slower DNA fragments will migrate through the gel. Which fragment will require a higher agarose % in the gel?
