Female kangaroos carry their young (joeys) in a pouch. Likewise, kangaroo words contain another word (a joey) within themselves. A joey word is a synonym of the kangaroo word, and the letters must be in the same order.

Example: "rapscallion" contains the word "rascal": RApSCALlion

See if you can find the joey words in these kangaroo words:
1. transgression
2. departed
3. destruction
4. facade
5. cleanser

See if you can find two joey words in this kangaroo word:
6. deteriorate


Answer

1. sin (tranSgressIoN)
2. dead (DEpArteD)
3. ruin (destRUctIoN)
4. face (FACadE)
5. cleaner (CLEANsER)
6. die / rot (DeterIoratE / deteRiOraTe)
