    Nice! Didn't get the clue for 1A/D until I already had the answer. Perfect. :)

      I'm still not getting 1A and 1D. Can anyone explain for me?
      • Velocipedist 🤓4:58 · 2023-02-04T19:38:00.513Z

          What does the "in" word in each clue mean?
          • Brian Callahan constructor · 2023-02-04T21:47:57.119Z
            Both "Micro" and "Mega" are prefixes that can lead into "Phone" to create a new word. The question mark indicates a pun or play on words. One might "phone in" to their job when they're taking a day off. Hope this helps!

            It's also a style of Southern hip-hop. Cue The More You Know GIF. Thanks for solving!
