ample but canopy comes crescent elixir emigrant hammock happenchance inane knowledge laughter libraries lingers lost nest offend old rhino thralldom undercover underplay vicinity wisdom zucchini

Cross off the word that...

-1. has the same vowel/consonant pattern as BULL'S-EYE

-11. is an anagram of a popular musical
-12. is the only word in the list with a letter repeated three times
-13. uses only letters from the middle twelve letters of the alphabet
-14. would form a new word if each of its letters is alphabetically reflected (A to Z, B to Y, etc.)
-15. alternates between odd and even letters of the alphabet (and is four letters or more)
-16. would spell a new word if you inserted ARROW somewhere inside it
-17. contains (consecutively) three consecutive letters of the alphabet
-18. can have an S added to the beginning and still spell a word
-19. would name a punctuation mark if you deleted its first and last letters and reversed the result
-20. is still a word if you read only its even letters
