Six words have had their chess terms removed. The chess terms 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 chess term 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: check, file, pawn, queen, rank, rook
Group B: acisct, acsmi, eesae, pve, slshdo, ttlesae


Answer

check + eesae = cheesecake (CHeesECaKe)
file + acsmi = facsimile (FacsImiLE)
pawn + slshdo = splashdown (sPlAshdoWN)
queen + acisct = acquiescent (acQUiEscENt)
rank + ttlesae = rattlesnake (RAttlesNaKe)
rook + pve = provoke (pROvOKe)
