Manny the JugglerLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
Manny the Juggler was getting pretty proficient at his craft, letter-juggling! He was able to juggle up to four letters at a time with ease! He now thought it time to try to move on to FIVE letters. He went and grabbed five related five-letter words (one plural) and proceeded to try to juggle each one. Alas, every time he tried, one letter of each word would invariably fall, bounce off his foot, and roll away. Each time he noticed that the leftover letters of each five-letter word could be rearranged to form a new four-letter one! Moreover, when he collected the five dropped letters (one from each word), he discovered that he could add a letter to that new group to make a six-letter word related to the other five five-letter ones! His excitement didn't last long, as he was still unable to juggle in fives. Sigh, maybe next time!
Can you add a letter to each of the four-letter words and rearrange them to find out what the original five-letter words were that Manny juggled? Each word is related.
Now, take each letter added to the above words and add another to the group to create a six-letter word also related to the original five.
HintThe five-letter words are objects that could really be juggled!
Answerreps + A = pears
chap + E = peach
page + R = grape
moan + G = mango
mole + N = lemon
AERGN + O = ORANGE
