Letter By Letter I

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

Beginning with the word "AN", continue adding letters from the given pool to create new words until you are left with a seven-letter word that refers to "an object found in space". You can add a letter to any spot in the word, but you cannot mix up the order of letters while doing so.

Pool: E L P S T

1) AN
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)

The hint gives short definitions of all words created in the process of finding the final seven-letter word (This will make the teaser really easy!).

Not to get too picky, but "planets" is plural. Ergo, the answer is "objectS" found in space, not "an object" found in space. Also, there are numerous possible solutions to get to the final word, not just 1.

I never quite understand the directions to these, but the hint did help. It sounded like you could not let go of AN as a start in evey word. Oh well!.I got through it.

Another comgination that works:

1) AN
2) PAN
3) PLAN
4) PLANT
5) PLANTS (instructions didn't say plurals were not valid words...)
6) PLANETS

Poorly conceived and poorly written. There are several possible solutions and, to cap it off, "PLANETS" does not refer to "an object in space," as the instructions state, but to "objectS in space." Boo for this one.

I didn't like this one at all. I thought that you had to take a letter from the pool given. I didn't think you could use any letter but one time. Am I going crazy or just not understanding their wording.

Way too easy, and many ways to reach planets. Cute, but no challenge.
