Great. With the archaic wrought for good measure.

I'm sorry, but this was poorly thought out. They're all also verbs, and that's what I got.

Granted, they are all verbs, and perhaps there should have been a note or something stating that this commonality isn't the one we are looking for (which could have been cleverly carried out), that doesn't make it "poorly thought out" I think it was rather good!

Did not like the "wrought" one - threw me way off. I doubt I have ever used it as a past tense of work

Excellent

There's nothing wrong with this puzzle. The word "wrought" is still a correct past tense of "work", though rare.

I had know idea that wrought was the past tense of work. I learned something new from this teaser, and had fun!
