    Hello

    1#

    What six-letter word is missing from this sequence?

    DIRECT
    ROLE
    OCCIDENTAL
    DARE
    ??????
    SHADOW
    AMUSED

    2 #

    I suppose I should have started by saying hello.

    23 5 12 3 15 13 ?

    3#

    Take away one of the letters in the grid and yet still leave all 26 letters of the alphabet. Which letter can be taken away?

    Re: Hello

    I hadn't thought of that! <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> As ever, my imprecision lets me down. I should have prefixed 3# with, "Without rotation".

    Re: Hello

    I see what you mean, Stuart, but the solution I'm after is slightly more pleasing, but not much more.

    Yes, slightly more credible than my efforts, but not much!

    If you allowed rotation, only the N would make sense.
