'sandwiches' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't tell whether this works.

'acts intelligently and' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'acts' could be 'uses' (use is a kind of act) and 'uses' is located in the answer.
'and' could be 'n' (common abbreviation for 'and') and 'n' is found in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'makes' is the link.
