Six words have had their sticky things removed. The sticky things 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 sticky thing 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: glue, gum, jam, paste, tape, tar
Group B: aricutr, hete, oret, ournlis, rai, srtoshre


glue + aricutr = agriculture (aGricuLtUrE)
gum + oret = gourmet (GoUrMet)
jam + ournlis = journalism (JournAlisM)
paste + rai = parasite (PAraSiTE)
tape + srtoshre = stratosphere (sTrAtosPhEre)
tar + hete = theater (TheAteR)
