The object of these teasers is to figure out a commonly used phrase of two or more words. The phrase has omitted from it any letters that the two have in common with each other. The number of missing letters from each appear next to the word. A hint has been included to round it out. In some cases whole words have been omitted, and are noted as [Entire Word], followed by the number of letters in that word.

Example:

UTOM(4) VI(5) + How may I help you? = CUSTOMER SERVICE

Think you got it? Good! Try these:

1. O(3) IN(3) + "Makeover for your walkers" =

2. I(3) ODR(3) + "Can hold multiple records without doing anything special." =

3. RSS(3) [ENTIRE WORD](2) NDENE(5) + "I don't know who to trust" =

4. S(6) HE(1) R(4) + "Contrary to the norm, or natural order" =

Bonus:

RN(1) HE(1) GAM(2) + "Range" =
