Guppy,

I was thinking it was "elevator". By melancholy, I was thinking of elevator music. The part about only going down had me puzzled, though.

Do you have any other words from the test?

The teacher told the class they were pretty dumb for missing that? That's not a very obvious clue.

Maybe a better clue would be: "It's quieter than a library. People never take their boots off here. Everybody's just dying to get in here." (okay, that's getting cheesy)

Only one ride to it and it only goes down? That's flat out incorrect, unless the cemetary is at the bottom of a hill. What a poopie professor.
