or "sleets" b/c it's the only one with no O's. i didn't think of your solution. good one... "steels" means to make hard or strong; also to cover, plate, or edge in steel.

Not to offend you but the brain teaser is very bad. Their is a lot of possible answers you could put in. Not thought well over at all.

More than one possible answer! For example, sloops is the only noun. Not a good riddle. Sorry.

The last three all end with "oops". It may be too obvious for this type of puzzle, but it is a correct answer. You need to constrain the possible answers to eliminate this possibility.

I thought it was sleets, the only one with "ee"

yes, yes, yes, there are a lot of POSSIBLE answers, but there is only one CORRECT answer

No, all the answers above are correct. The rules of the game determine right or wrong, not the (seemingly arbritrary) answer that you alone have determined. Look above at the responses of quite a few people. Compare those responses to those of other problems. This tells you something . . . and yes, there may be hundreds of different things that the pattern can tell you (like your riddle), however here there is one solution that is more likely than others.

Steels is a word, is a conjugation of the transitive verb "to steel" (www.dictionary.com):

tr.v. steeled, steel·ing, steels
1. To cover, plate, edge, or point with steel.
2. To make hard, strong, or obdurate; strengthen: He steeled himself for disappointment.

dearie me peoples, this is a group teaser i.e one person knows the answer and the others have to guess so yes of course there are lots of answers otherwise there'd be no point! I thought it was a good riddle cos you tend to think of all the most obvious things like the double ee. oh and lizard you've made that sort of comment before and you looked pretty stupid when someone explained the riddle to you didn't you?

on an old style recording device the tape spools from one spool to the other.

In group teasers, a very good solution for avoiding multiple solutions is a well written hint to point the "braingler" in the right direction. I had fun with this one, good job.
