    1. Ram 18D is incorrect, where did you get ROT from?. Take a relook at it

    3. One of the meanings of rot is pointless talk and I thought it may suit for wandering during the discussion away from the point

    1. For 18A (AIR HANDLER - RED)* does not give INHALER? (there is no E after RED is removed). I took it as (AIR HANDLER -RAD)* (Rad for radical I guess)

      Delete
    2. Late posting. You are right, Ramki. Rad (informal usage) for radical is ok. Wiki confirms it.

    1. Didn't see that clue has been solved by MB:

      19D Grasped actual study backwards (7) LEARNED {LEAR<=NED<=}
      Normally we take it as NED RAEL as the reversal applies to the whole fodder.
