Arrange the alphabet (except the letter Q) in a 5x5 grid. (The first line is ABCDE, the second is FGHIJ, etc.) Begin with any letter. Move one letter at a time horizontally, vertically or diagonally, accumulating letters. For example, GAB would be an acceptable word. What is the longest word you can make without reusing a letter?



Answer

According to the Scrabble dictionary, CHINTZY is the longest word, and there are only five six letter words in the grid.
