In this teaser I have provided you with some simple sentences that contain words with the letter 'Z' in them. The problem is, I have deleted the word (except for the letter 'Z' itself). Your job is to figure out what the missing word is. Have fun!


1. The young lad had a very serious bout of - - Z - - - which caused itching and the exudation of serous matter.

2. He has a tough exterior, since the worst insults never seem to - - Z - him.

3. I must - - - - - Z - next week's outing to the local - - Z - - -, because I want to try to find a cheap - - - Z - - - for the coming winter chill.

4. The author - - - - - Z - - over what to write in the next chapter of his novel on - - - Z - -.

5. The couple dined at the newly-opened - - - Z - hotel but got a little - - - ZZ - - - when the band played - - - - - - Z - music all evening.

Should have stated that the word were the American spellings. I didn't get number 4 as we use "AGONISED" with an "S", not a "Z". Good teasers other than that.

It's ok, I use realised with an s not a z but that's just strange little moi

Got the first 2 but then stopped thinking. ( ? Why would I say ? Brainlessness is nothing to be ashamed of! Maybe it is then. )

I've always used 'realized' with a 's'. Great teaser!

Thanks guys. I appreciate your comments.

Good point about the 's' and the 'z'. [Previously, I have been criticised (criticized) for using the English version (s)].
