    Re: Word Play

    Ok, I am hazarding a guess for #1

    Is it<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Supervise as all the other words, if changed to

    Advertiser
    Compromiser
    Despiser
    Organiser
    Reviser

    but Supervise becomes SupervisOR

    So all the words when changed from the verb to a noun end in ER but supervise ends with OR
