Six words have had their numbers removed. The numbers have been placed into Group A. The remaining letters of each word have been placed into Group B. Your task is to reconstitute the words by merging each number with the proper set of letters. Other than merging the two groups together, there is no rearranging of the letters. Example: sand + pne= spanned (SpANneD).

Group A: four, nine, one, six, ten, three
Group B: bucr, erity, lnde, phn, smiens, untedd


Answer

four + lnde = flounder (FlOUndeR)
nine + untedd = unintended (uNInteNdEd)
one + bucr = bouncer (bOuNcEr)
six + phn = sphinx (SphInX)
ten + erity = eternity (eTErNity)
three + smiens = smithereens (smiTHeREEns)
