A nonagram is a 9-letter word made from three 3-letter words or abbreviations.

In this teaser, each sentence gives three clues, leading to the three short words (or abbreviations) that make the nonagram.

*Example* Worker on a curved path, with a little twitch.
*Hint* Polar (region)
*Answer* Antarctic - [Worker = ANT; Curved path = ARC; Twitch = TIC]

These nonagrams all begin with the letter "C".


1. The taxi took a section of the journey with a male sheep!

2. "Puss" joined the American Medical Association and took charge.

3. The short Commodore is with a guy who has an IBM operating system.

4. Swindle by a despicable man and a communist.
