Application withdrawl at BB

I recently withdrew an application from a Tier 1 BB. The reason is that I had already signed an offer to join another BB and, long story short, because of some e-mails I sent the Tier 1 BB knew what this firm was and knew I had an exploding offer with them so at the Superday they would have probably asked me if I ended up accepting the offer to which I would have said yes. Fearing they might have told the Tier 2 BB I was also interviewing with them I did not feel like losing two potential offers after the struggle I had to go through to even get one.

Now the Tier 1 BB is asking the reason why I withdrew so that they can record it in their system. What does it mean and what should I answer them?

Thanks!

Just say you accepted a competing job offer? Sorry, not sure what the question is.

You're overthinking this way too much. They're not going to withdraw your offer for making and fleshing out multiple applications.
