Be of use (5)

Ross

I think it could be either:

serve

avail

'be of use' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for serve that I've seen before include "Distribute" , "Work for, be of use to" , "deal" , "Be useful to" , "Answer the purpose" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, The New York Times, The Mirror, the LA Times, the King Feature Syndicate, the Universal, the Evening Standard and The Independent.
