Quandary Resolution 4516
onomastics, amerce, largesse, boustrophedon

Ms. Perkins was not amused by young Timothy's gag of writing his essay on Ancient Greece in the alternating fashion of boustrophedon, so she amerced him ten points, but because she was not particularly skilled at onomastics, she extracted the fine from another student's transcript, while granting Timothy a largesse that was not due to him.
