Here is my best explanation:

'part' is the definition.
(section is a kind of part)

'boy has to cite wrong' is the subsidiary indication.
'boy' becomes 'son' ('son' can be a synonym of 'boy'**).
'has' is an insertion indicator.
'wrong' indicates anagramming the letters.
'cite' is an anagram of 'ecti'.
'son' enclosing 'ecti' is 'section'.
