This keyword is explained in detail in the tutorial you linked, see in 
particular Figure 2. In brief, the ADJUST_SIZE keyword determines whether 
the size of atoms, as defined by atom type specific radii (keyword 
ATOMIC_RADII), should be accounted for in the construction of the CDFT 
constraints. The default FALSE value indicates that all atoms are treated 
equally (i.e. they have the same atomic radius). This can lead to strange 
partial charges as discussed in the tutorial. If you set the keyword to 
TRUE, you can choose different atoms to have different sizes which leads to 
physically reasonable partial charges. You should run the water dimer part 
<> of the tutorial to get 
a better understanding on how this scheme affects the calculated partial
