A thousand at university following given one coin ... very generous (10)
I believe the answer is:
'very generous' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'a thousand at university following given one coin' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'thousand' could be 'm' (Roman numeral for a thousand) and 'm' is found in the answer.
'university' could be 'uni' (informal abbreviation) and 'uni' is found within the answer.
'following' could be 'f' (used when citing page numbers etc) and 'f' is found in the answer.
'one' could be 'i' (Roman numeral) and 'i' is found within the answer.
'coin' could be 'cent' (cent is a kind of coin) and 'cent' is located in the answer.
This accounts for all the letters.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
Can you help me to learn more?
(Another definition for munificent that I've seen is " Very generous".)
