Paltry income, agreed? (6)
I believe the answer is:
'paltry' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)
'income agreed?' is the wordplay.
'MEAGRE' is hidden in amongst the letters.
However, I am not sure how the hidden word is indicated.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for meagre that I've seen before include "Paltry" , "Small, insufficient" , "Scarce - scanty" , "Poor in quality" , "Insubstantial" .)
