Find a common 3 letter word given the following:
LEG has no common letter with it.
ERG has one common letter, not at the correct place.
SIR has one common letter, at the correct place.
SIC has one common letter, not at the correct place.
AIL has one common letter, not at the correct place.


Answer

The word is CAR.
Since the word contains no E or G as in LEG, the only good letter in ERG is R. Then the good letter in SIR is R and it is the third letter of the word. I and L are not in the word, so the good letter of AIL is A. The A is not the first letter of the word, so it must the be second. The good letter of SIC is C,which must begin the word.
