Cities, Countries and Colors (Posted on 2020-09-06) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Let us disobey Bard's warning: "Neither a borrower nor a lender be" and proceed as follows:

There are 2 lists, each of 10 words, one is the Borrower's list,
the other the Lender's list.

Borrower's list
1. chance
2. coma
3. ports
4. drive
5. change
6. people
7. vegas
8. train
9. stay
10.pardon

Lender's list:
1. orator
2. older
3. frigid
4. sport
5. melody
6. tube
7. toxin
8. grid
9. magic
10.jurist

For each of the 10 words in Borrower's list (e.g. coma): - match a word of the same length from Lender's list, (in our example tube), such that by picking 2 letters from it (u & b) and inserting them in the same positions (2 & 3) in the 1st word selected by you a new valid word will be created.
It should denote either a color or geopolitical entity (Cuba in our case.).
Our example's solution can be thertefore coma; tube (2,3)==>Cuba

List 9 more pairs.
Hint: If solving manually - start with the short words.
