Starting with a one-letter word or abbreviation, add a letter and rearrange the letters to produce the next. A clue is given for each.

Maybe your car does 0 to 60 in 10 sec., but can you do 0 to 10 in 60 sec.? Go on - get out the stopwatch!

The hint provides the starting letters of the even numbered words.

1. Prefix meaning "without"
2. Commercial, flyer, or junk mail
3. Bundle (of bank notes)
4. No winner, no loser
5. Flask to keep things cool
6. Prize or present
7. (It was) sketched again
8. A rolling stone
9. Boxers, bloomers, bra, or briefs
10. Submarine

You're right, xdbtcp!
Carelessness right at the very end! Hopefully it won't take too long to correct it. Meanwhile, I hope it doesn't spoil the enjoyment of pyramid building.

Yes, the "Hint" for #10 should be a "U".

I think I am getting too old for these as I had no idea what we were supposed to do. Even after reading the answer I still do not know what this one was about. Tomorrow is another day though.

Don't be too hard on yourself Babe. You are sharper at your age than a lot of people 1/3 your age.
We've all had teasers we had trouble with.
All you had to do, was start with a 1 letter word then with each step add a letter and rearrange them to fi the next vlue.
So you go from a 1 letter word to a rwo letter word to a three letter word and so on, up to the final 10 letter word.
You will do better tomorrow I'm sure.

The only one I had trouble with was number 5. Never heard of Dewar - had to google it! Nice Teaser!
