Understanding Today's Crossword Puzzle

The clue "Look displeased as small animal left" points to the answer "SCOWL." Here's why this answer fits the clue:

  • Look displeased: "Scowl" is a word that specifically conveys a facial expression of displeasure or anger. When someone scowls, their face shows a frown or contortion that signifies disapproval or dissatisfaction.
  • As small animal left: In this context, the term "left" can refer to the word "small" being shortened, representing a small animal. When combining "small animal" and "left," we derive "mouse." The letter "m" from "mouse" is "left" in common language, leaving us with "ouse." If we reverse "ouse" (small animal left), we get "esuo," which resembles "scowl" in pronunciation.

Therefore, the clue "Look displeased as small animal left" fittingly leads us to the answer "SCOWL" due to its representation of a displeased expression that can be inferred from the combination of "small animal left."
