End/Start InsertsLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
For each of the pairs of words below, insert a word in the blank space between them to form two separate words such that the inserted word finishes the first word and begins the second. For example, given "MAN ____ ON", you would insert the word "GO" to form "MANGO" and "GOON". The hint gives the number of letters in each of the words that must be inserted.
BOW ____ AGE
GENE ____ KING
LAND ____ GOAT
DIG ____ SELF
PAR ____ ATE
HintThe number of letters of each word that must be inserted are, respectively: 4, 3, 5, 2, 3.

TIC (genetic, ticking)
SCAPE (landscape, scapegoat)
