Agile Meaning

Some players struggled to solve the puzzle because there were too many options, but some struggled with today's challenge because they were unfamiliar with the word. The word is not particularly common in everyday life, so what does the word agile mean?

The word agile is defined by the Oxford dictionary as an adjective meaning, 'able to move quickly and easily'. For example you could say, "Ruth was remarkably agile and light on her feet." Synonyms for this word are; nimble, lithe, spry, supple, and limber. 

The word can also mean, 'relating to or denoting a method of project management, used especially for software development, that is characterized by the division of tasks into short phases of work and frequent reassessment and adaptation of plans.' For example, you could say, "agile methods replace high-level design with frequent redesign."
