If you were one of the many players that failed to solve this challenge because you were unfamiliar with the word 'trite,' don't worry! You are not alone. The word trite is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as, "hackneyed or boring from much use, not fresh or original."
To give an example, the Cambridge dictionary highlights that you could say 'His lyrics about love and peace are too trite for me to take them seriously." You could also say, "I know it will sound trite, but I've loved being part of this club."
