One day a science teacher decided to give her class a test. She gave her class a paper with lists of chemical elements, and a space. She told her class to find the type of people that fits in each space.

1. Phosphorus-Oxygen-Lithium-Sulfur-Hydrogen

2. Americium-Erbium-Iodine-Calcium-Nitrogen-Sulfur

3. Sulfur-Tungsten-Iodine-Sulfur-Sulfur

4. Phosphorus-Iodine-Radium-Tellurium-Sulfur

Easy took to long to find the elements. Easy to figure out what to do though.

Easy? If you had to look at a periodic table then it wasn't that easy for you. It was easy for me but I didn't cheat Fun. At least the science isn't horribly skewed here as it is with many other teasers.

heh I couldn't quite remember whether phosphorus had anything more than a P, but when I got to 'pirates' I was able to figure out the first one...

I've played this game before kinda, only to get disappointed that neither my first nor last name can be spelled with chemical elements, boo hoo.
