This week's word in the news: CLARITY

DEFINITION:
The quality of being clear and easy to understand.


FOUND IN THE NEWS:
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said he’s seen little clarity on basic questions: whether there would still be a police department and if so, whether Medaria Arradondo, the city’s first black chief, would continue to lead it.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune -- 06/29/2020
