Why do thin RCC slabs have more shear strength than that of thicker slabs?

Why do thin RCC slabs have more shear strength than that of thicker slabs?

For the same amount of Loading Conditions ans support conditions, when slab is designed the depth gets reduced as Shear Strength is governed by,

Vu=Tav/bd

Now Since Tav is same in both the cases, d decreases and hence more shear strength is achieved
