Greep Hooke was asked by a priest to determine which FOUR (4) words below should be in his IN-BOX and which FOUR (4) words should be in his OUT-BOX.

The priest said that the real challenge however was to do so in such a way that each word in the IN-BOX be paired with a word in the OUT-BOX.

SISTER SKIRT SHY SPRING
SANE SECT SAT SPED

Question : How should the words be grouped and paired?

Answer:

Words in the IN-BOX are listed first, and the related word found in the OUT-BOX is listed second:

inSECT...outSKIRT
SinISTER...SoutANE
SHinY...SPoutED
SATin...SPRoutING

Words are grouped based on which of IN or OUT could be added to form a new word.

Words are paired based on where IN or OUT could be added to the word.

Hint : While SANE could also be under IN-BOX to read INSANE, proper pairings would not be possible if that is done hence the hint. A SOUTANE is also called a CASSOCK. Crazy suggests INSANE.
