    What does he mean?

    Hi everyone,
    My teacher wrote a comment on my research, which I really would like to know what it means. The comment was as follow:
    "A spirited attempt to construct an argument which befits a veritable devil's advocate."
    I know what is a devil advocate, however, I want to know what does this sentence mean in general.
    Thanks in advance,

    You probably meant an excellent student. Your teacher did- a spirited effort is a good, keem, lively one.

    Yes, I meant that I am an excellent student however, ment is good. One more thing, I did all the work, he did not do anything for me. He just put the mark and underlined the mistakes, if there were some.
