The schoolís dean, who didnít like Gaudi for once criticizing a building he (had designed / designed), failed Gaudi.
Fortunately, one of Gaudiís professors gave him another chance, and he successfully completed a project designing a fountain.
Signing Gaudiís diploma, the dean said, ďWho knows (if / that) we have given this diploma to a nut or to a genius? Only time will tell.Ē
Does this nut mean "crazy person" or "oddball" or "a stupid guy"?
In this context, 'crazy person', but it can carry all of those meaning in various contexts.
