The answer to the clue ‘Resist Temptation’, has two possibilities. The crossword has given 7 spaces for the answer and there are actually two seven-letter words that could fit. But of course only one is correct!

HINT: The correct word also means ‘the section of a song when a soloist is joined by a group’.

Synonyms for the answer to this clue include ‘abstain’, and ‘forbear’. ‘Abstain’ would have fit as it is 7 letters too, but it would have not helped with any other answers in the crossword, and therefore have been incorrect! This particular clue answer is REFRAIN which means “to resist doing something”.

And so that is the answer to today’s first Wall Street Journal clue- ‘Resist Temptation’: REFRAIN. Enter the word exactly as is shown and the letters will offer clues to the next set of clues you will have to answer.
