Six words have had their plant parts removed. The plant parts 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 plant part 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: leaf, petal, pistil, root, seed, stem
Group B: abeneis, anakngy, enrbe, hphr, needcrt, othdnic


Answer

leaf + needcrt = needlecraft (needLEcrAFt)
petal + enrbe = penetrable (PenETrAbLe)
pistil + anakngy = painstakingly (PaInSTakIngLy)
root + othdnic = orthodontic (oRthOdOnTic)
seed + hphr = shepherd (ShEphErD)
stem + abeneis = absenteeism (abSenTEeisM)
