Directions: Ratios usually involve numbers. This word ratio is a little different in that all four words in the ratio are somehow related. Can you find a word that completes the ratio?

(Note: there is more than one possible answer.)

Any 6-letter word with the letters "se" in the middle will complete the word ratio. Possible answers include the words absent, assert, bisect, desert, insect, itself, losers, misery, museum, resent, unseen, wisely, etc.

The middle two letters of each of the words in the ratio represents a direction. The embedded directions relate to the position of the word within the ratio.

Ok, so it's not in the precise middle of the word, and it's not a "dictionary-type" word...but it could be a word used to mean "toward the German city of Bonn." eighsse Aug 05, 2013 tENEt aNNEx eSSEx bESEt
