Perplex

Perplex

<per-pleks>

baffle; bewilder; puzzle

something that is confusing.

A mystery movie will perplex the audience. They don't know the answer until the end.

Memory trick:
remember perp.
a perp is an unknown person who committed a crime.
they are a mystery.

At work:
The complicated regulations perplex the accountants. They will spend days understanding them.
