TE determines how much decay of the transverse magnetization is allowed to occur before the signal is read.
If the TR is shorter than the T2-relaxation times of the imaged tissues, which will typically be case for breathhold imaging, the transverse magnetization will not fully decay be fore the next radiofrequency (RF) pulse.
2] is simply shortened, in the higher energy case the shape of the FID can be dramatically modified because the transverse magnetization can increase during the free precession.
