    Re: 10-letter words

    I started answering these, but then saw the instruction that said "to leave a common 10-letter word", and couldn't find anything related between the 10 letter words I found.

    1. has an alternate answer of <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Decorating</span hide>
    2. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Satellites</span hide>
    4. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Monumental</span hide>
    5. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Tiebreaker</span hide>

    Re: 10-letter words

    <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35> - Nice job!

    The original puzzle (from where I got the idea...) went like this:
    <hr><center>If you take out six letters from the list below, the remaining letters will form a common english word. Find the word?</center>
    <center>BSIANXLEATNTEARS</center><hr>
    Your response to #3 is obviously correct. Now I see that it was a play on words.

    10-letter words

    You'll need to remove six unwanted letters from each of the groups below to leave a common 10-letter word:

    <pre><big>01. E D S E A C O N R M A T I O N G <font color=008080>Jezza (1), Stuart (2)</font color=008080>
    02. S A N I T E A L D L I W T E S T <font color=008080>Stuart</font color=008080>
    03. B S I A N X L E A T N T E A R S <font color=008080>Preston</font color=008080>
    04. D M O U N C U M E A N T A R L D <font color=008080>Stuart</font color=008080>
    05. S T I E A M B L F R E A D K E R <font color=008080>Stuart</font color=008080>
