Is there any way that I should have picked Aristotle for Alexander's tutor, and not Socrates or Plato? The emphasis on science? Chronology? Or is this just a YEKIOYD, otherwise it's a "pick one of three, and good luck"?
Aristotle tutoring Alexander is used a lot in trivia. I know Alexander was the last of the three and I can remember it by thinking that Socrates was busy teaching Plato, Plato was busy teaching Aristotle, Aristotle had a bunch of free time so he tutored Alexander.
Pretty sure I've posted this previously, but I use SPA to remember the Greek philosophers in chronological order, and then Aristotle and Alexander both begin with A.
Neither of my precalls came up in High-Scoring 4-Letter Scrabble Words: jinx or quiz.
Ran Hats All, "End" and League in J, just Alexander in DJ.

, Spalding Gray, foxy, Peacekeeper, Pecos Bill (DD) [edited to change Darius to Peacekeeper--thx, LSV]
Fwiw, the Persian kings J! asks about go in alpha order oldest to most recent: Cyrus, Darius, Xerxes. Not that that would have helped today.
All I could come up with in FJ was toilet. Enceinte does not at all sound French to me... though toilet does.
