I ran a computer search for all the 8-letter English words where the third letter had a descender (pqgyj), the sixth and eight had ascenders (lbdfht), and the other letters had neither. I got the following words:
acquital, aegrotat, argental, argentol, arquated, augustal, capsidal, capsuled, capuched, cryostat, engirded, engouled, enjambed, ergostat, expanded, expected, expended, experted, expiated, exported, impacted, imparled, imparted, impasted, impended, imported, imposted, ingested, injected, inparfit, inputted, keynoted, magerful, magnetod, migrated, miquelet, mujtahid, ragouted, regarded, regental, regraded, regrated, reguided, rejected, repasted, repealed, repeatal, repeated, repented, reported, reprobed, requital, requited, requoted, riposted, roqueted, sagittal, saprodil, septated, septolet, signaled, signeted, superfat, superfit, superhet, topnotch, ungaited, ungarbed, ungashed, ungirded, ungoaded, ungraded, ungrated, unguided, unguiled, ungutted, unjailed, unparfit, unparted, unpasted, unpathed, unpatted, unpealed, unpeeled, unpetted, unpitted, unpooled, unposted, unpotted, unprobed, unproded, unprofit, unpurled, unpushed, unquoted, wagonful
Of those, only imported really seems to fit the sentence, but I would like to see the look on the teacher’s face if you supplied “superfat”, “injected”, or “ungirded”.
Topnotch is on the list because
t has a “low ascender”, so it could count or not — but I wouldn’t use it because the uses the first
t without the ascender and the second word with.
