Male, Female ...
Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
There is a word in the English language in which the first two letters signify a male, the first three letters signify a female, the first four letters signify a great man, and the whole word a great woman. What's the word?
HintStart off with two letters and then work your way up.
Heroine. HE, HER, HERO, HEROINE.
