    Thanks for reviewing Vocabulary.com — glad you liked it! To address your question: When you click on the “Look Up” button when playing the Challenge, the word’s definition loads on the page directly below the Challenge box. That way you can see information about words used in the answers without losing your place in the Challenge.

    Have you tried scrolling down? It’s possible that your browser is displaying the loaded definitions “below the fold.”
