This week, I gave you the following words and asked you to place a letter on each row that could be substituted for the first letter of the words on either side, to form another word in each case. These new letters would then spell out a word when read downwards.
But what was this word? Find out after the break…
Well, here’s what you should have put in for each row:
- P (giving pence and pitch)
- R (giving roast and relay)
- I (giving items and ionic)
- N (giving nasty and niece)
- C (giving caper and chore)
- E (giving eland and elate)
So the word to be read downwards was PRINCE! Perhaps now the title of these puzzle posts makes more sense, hm?
I’ll see you on Monday for the next puzzle.
P.S. Yes, eland is a word!
