    Re: Chemical Words

    Don't know whether I'm on the right track but:
    2. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>six iron</font color=yellow></span hi>
    9. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>paradox</font color=yellow></span hi>

    9 is correct
    2 is wrong, though not a bad guess. Not bad in the sense that it fits, though it is NOT close at all.

    No, Mercury is a chemical. It is one of the ca 114 elements. But that is NOT what the symbol is.

    Nope. a hint <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow> the object uses the latin word for iron (which is used in different forms in solutions). The chemical symbol for iron, Fe, is an abbreviation for the latin word</font color=yellow></span hi>
