@Jafe My guess was something like PROFFERS, it's got PRO (expert), FF (fixed-font), PROF (professor, an expert), F (font) PR (presidential republique), O (a blood type) but nothing really worked together :/
also the def should then be "gives" not "give", right?
yeah exactly
bit of a non-starter TBH
not that i have anything better to proffer
i have 4 unfinished crosswords to work on which is clearly too much so i decided not to work on any of them and start a new unfinished crossword

Q: A Faulty Number Trick

TwoBitOperationThis trick just isn't adding up for me: Take any whole number, Subtract a shorter whole number from it, Reverse what's left, then add 10 to it. You will find, for any number you've picked, your answer will match it! How can that be possible?
