You are enrolled in a "Wordonometry" class, which involves adding and subtracting parts of words, and using special functions on a word. It is the end of the first day of school, and your homework assignment will use the functions below:

ana(____)
ana(____)
syn(____)
+end+ se
-b
-c

Below are the definitions of the functions above:

ana(____) = Change the word into an anagram of its former self. Example: ana(ignore) = region
syn(____) = Change the word into a synonym of its former self. Example: syn(idiosyncratic) = strange
+end+ = Add the second word/fragment to the end of the first word/fragment. Example: rob +end+ in = robin
- = Subtract the second word/fragment from the first word/fragment. Example: those - os = the

You can use these functions in any order you need to change words into other words, but not word fragments. Can you use the above functions to change BRACE into DELETE?
