Crossword Genius

Conceals many questions (5)


I believe the answer is:


'conceals' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'many questions' is the wordplay.
'many' becomes 'm' (Roman numeral for a thousand).
'questions' becomes 'asks' (as in asking a question).

(Other definitions for masks that I've seen before include "Coverings to conceal the face" , "Hides, disguises" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
