The 15 triplets listed below were created by dividing each
of 5 not-so-common 9-letter words - each into 3 parts:

QUA, SUN, UAC, LLE, QUA,
ALL, SQU, LOQ, ITY, ARE,
AQU, UNE, LED, VIA, DRI.

You are requested to
- reconstruct the original words
- provide a short comment on each
- discover one common feature, present in all five.

Have fun!

Hints/Tips re: quadrivia Comment 6 of 6 |
The quadrivium (plural: quadrivia) is the four subjects, or arts, taught after teaching the trivium.
The word is Latin, meaning four ways, and its use for the four subjects has been attributed to Boethius or Cassiodorus  in the 6th century.
