Hi all, once again I'm stuck on one.
22D A university occasionally copied, held up as sound. A-E-O

Is it 'APERO', which is an anagram of opera? If so, can someone tell me why, please? TIA

Thank you all so very much. I'd considered Audio and was trying alternate letters, but didn't think to shorten university to uni., so gave that one up. Grrrrr.
Question Author
That means that 24A is wrong. I had 'intense'. 'Den' must come into it somewhere. Help!
into(obsesse) + den (study) reversed

Thank you very much Danny. I was just coming around to that - but without much confidence. :)
