Native English speakers, what does this sentence mean?
Hi there, what does the following sentence mean to you?
"He frowned, not believing the suggestion and too tired to hide it."
Okay now this particular sentence is kinda confusing, when it says he was too tired to hide it does that mean he was too tired to hide his 'frowning' expression or was he just too tired to reason with the suggestion his friend made?

He was too tired to hide his expression showing that he didn't believe the story.

He frowned because he didn't believe the suggestion and he was too tired to hide that he didn't believe it (by not frowning.)

The problem with the sentence is that "it" doesn't quite refer to anything. It should be "He frowned, not believing the suggestion and too tired to hide his disbelief."

A suggestion was made that he did not agree with, and being tired of debating numerous suggestions, he was too tired to hide his disappointment at this latest suggestion.
