Arcane

Arcane

Adjective.

<ahr-kane>

Puzzling; hidden; secret

Math is an arcane topic for me.

I was perplexed by the arcane magic tricks.

Memory trick 1
Arc reminds of the arch of a large door.
Imagine a large door to an old castle.
An old castle holds secrets.

Memory trick 2
Think of "Are Canny".
Secretive people are canny.





Canny means shrewd and clever.

Use it at work:
Your instructions are arcane and no one can understand them.
