Complete 5-Letter Words


I found this quiz on my Facebook feed via Mental Floss. You're given a five-letter word with one letter missing. Only one letter will complete the word, and each letter of the alphabet can only be used once.

But beware. You only have 1:30 minutes to complete...

Complete the 5-Letter Words 


It took me three tries to get to 100%. The first time I got 73%. I missed one, and I ran out of time. The second time I got up to 80%, again missing one and running out of time. It goes quickly. 

Try it. Some of the words are obvious. Some are a bit more tricky. Good luck.

  1. Hi Liz - I was hopeless .. couldn't get used to the keyboard! Some were very obvious, one or two I couldn't work out ... but still a brief interlude .. thank you! Cheers and have a good weekend - Hilary

  3. Gee, I don't know, it didn't open for me. I clicked on the Open Floss link, and either my computer is acting up or ... I don't know. Sounds like fun, though.

    1. That's too bad. I've had issues with quizzes of theirs, too, so it might be them, not you.

    1. It's obvious when you're looking at the answers. Without answers, not so much.
