  1. The definition needs a slight correction. It should read like this:
    unbelievable: so surprising that it is almost unable to be believed
    [word: definition]


    The pronoun "it" seems to be referring to whatever noun the adjective "unbelievable" would describe in a sentence. Here's an example:
    His arrival at home yesterday was unbelievable. We all thought he was still in Germany.
    The noun "arrival" is the noun being described by "unbelievable."
