This week, I posed to you the following puzzle:
“I am a card game. Change one letter and I am a baffling question. Change another letter and I am a failure. Change another letter and I am reduced. Finally, add one letter and I grow in the garden. What was I and what did I become?”
See the answers after the break!
So there isn’t really a way to explain how this process works, it’s just a bit of trial, error and logic. But the method to arrive at the solution was thus:
- Card game: POKER
- Question: POSER
- Failure: LOSER
- Reduced: LOWER
- Growing: FLOWER
That’s right ladies and gentlemen. I was a game of poker, and I became a flower. Don’t judge me.
