A PERFECT WORD is a word in which ANY one letter could be replaced by another letter to form another word.

An example of a 4-letter Perfect Word is CAST because C could be replaced by L to form LAST or A by O to form COST, or S by R to form CART, and T by E to form CASE.

Warm Up Exercise : Give a 5-letter Perfect Word.

Challenge : Give a 6-letter Perfect Word.

This was beautiful. I wrote a program to search the official Scrabble word list. I found 239 5-letter, 25 6-letter, and one 7-letter answer. (No 8, 9, or 10). Check out for my findings. I won't post the 7-letter, since I didn't figure it out on my own.
