"Rapacity" is a noun; your definition for it is an adjective (i.e., it's the definition for "rapacious").

These are the dictionary.com words of the day, no? I read them every day (cuz I'm nerdy) but didn't get many right (not nerdy enough)! You know it's a great quiz when you're angry at yourself for what you missed, and you set out to take it again and again until you nail it. :) five stars

@uphillrunner: Yup, I took some of the words from dictionary.com words of the day (I read them too but never remember them). I also took some of the words from Merriam-Webster's 'There's a word for that?' list. Thanks for the 5 stars!
