13. In the Description field use the below text.
"The identity of the longest word in English depends upon the definition of what constitutes a word in the English language, as well as how length should be compared.  Words may be derived naturally from the language's roots or formed by coinage and construction. Additionally, comparisons are complicated because place names may be considered words, technical terms may be arbitrarily long, and the addition of suffixes and prefixes may extend the length of words to create grammatically correct but unused or novel words.  The length of a word may also be understood in multiple ways. Most commonly, length is based on orthography (conventional spelling rules) and counting the number of written letters. Alternate, but less common, approaches include phonology (the spoken language) and the number of phonemes (sounds)"

14. You will see that the Description field is long enough for it to cross the expand vertically and the vertical scroll bar is enabled on the browser. This is tested on a 14inch Laptop screen with 1920 * 1080p Resolution.

15. Try editing the TSV field in the List Layout.
