     3. Able or clever in practical affairs; sharp in business;
        astute; sharp-witted; sagacious; keen; as, a shrewd
        observer; a shrewd design; a shrewd reply.
        [1913 Webster]

     Syn: Keen; critical; subtle; artful; astute; sagacious;
          discerning; acute; penetrating.
  
     Usage: {Shrewd}, {Sagacious}. One who is shrewd is keen to
            detect errors, to penetrate disguises, to foresee and
            guard against the selfishness of others. Shrewd is a
            word of less dignity than sagacious, which implies a
            comprehensive as well as penetrating mind, whereas
            shrewd does not.
            [1913 Webster] -- {Shrewd"ly}, adv. -- {Shrewd"ness},
            n.
            [1913 Webster]

      adv 1: in a shrewd manner; "he invested his fortune astutely";
             "he was acutely insightful" [syn: {astutely}, {shrewdly},
             {sagaciously}, {sapiently}, {acutely}]
