    Re: Word Arrangement!

    You are correct, but your answer reminds me that I forgot to add that to my original statement...(That the answer is not dependent on alphabetical sort order!)

    I modified the statement...so try again Tony...and thanks for highlighting that! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Word Arrangement!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Rudi on 18-May-05 10:58. To include an NB piece of information!!!)</P>Arrange these words in the appropriate order. (The answer is not an alphabetical sort order!).
    If you do not have it correct within 24hrs, I will assume you will never get it right!

    1. Infringement
    2. Demonstrate
    3. Wedding
    4. Insatiable
    5. Statuette
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Word Arrangement!

    I somehow suspected that something as simple as word length wouldn't be acceptable, even though it is at least as valid as alphabetical order.

    Re: Word Arrangement!

    Nope. The answer does not lie in the length of the word! Nice try though!

    Re: Word Arrangement!

    All right then, how about this order...

    If you demonstrate an insatiable desire for a statuette on your wedding day, then your new spouse may consider this to be an infringement of commitments to behave with decorum

    I see you have an insatiable desire to demonstrate the infringements of this puzzle!!

    Here is another TIP: Maybe I should give you a week to comlete it! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
