Bismillah ir Arahman ir Rahim

Salamu 'Alaikum!

A lot of Ayatollahs and Scholars, they say it is best to refrain from this or that because of obligatory precaution. 

What does this mean exactly?

Also, do the Shi'a scholars believe in things like the lesser evils?

Shukran.

Q 48: What does obligatory caution mean? 
A: It means that the obligation of performing or refraining from an action is a matter of caution. 

Basically when a marja' tells you this it means he does not have a clear fatwa on the issue, so as a matter of caution he prohibits you from doing such acts by issuing an obligatory caution to it. In cases like these, you either follow him and refrain from doing such acts or you are allowed to take the fatwas of the the next learned marja' who has a clear fatwa on the issue.

Obligatory precaution -  better to avoid if you can but okay if you cant.

I don't understand your lesser evil question
