Understanding Today's Crossword Puzzle

The clue "Prisoner has one dime, say" leads us to the answer "COIN." Let's break down why this answer fits perfectly with the clue:

  1. Prisoner: In this context, "prisoner" is a wordplay indicator, suggesting that we need to think of a term related to being confined or limited in some way.
  2. Has one dime: Here, "dime" typically refers to a coin of small value in U.S. currency. The use of "one" indicates a single instance of this currency unit.
  3. Say: The inclusion of "say" acts as a hint that the actual answer may not directly be a dime but something synonymous with or exemplifying it.

When we combine these elements, we see that a "COIN" closely matches the components of the clue. It represents a small unit of currency (like a dime) that a prisoner might have, and the phrase "has one dime" cleverly points to this common object.
