Ten nine-letter words have been separated into units of three letters. The units have been randomly put in the below list. Can you determine the original 10 words?
hol rec ant imp fer con
man dif ice pol acq htn
ort myt new air sag duc
dec lig kch ogy ing tan
uit ent gle tal tor ent
MYTHOLOGY (OGY sounds like an ending, probably ...LOGY)
DECKCHAIR (KCH must be in the middle, so DEC or DUC must start)
ACQUITTAL (ACQ must be followed by U)
LIGHTNING (LIG looks like a beginning)
IMPORTANT (ANT looks like an ending, though it could also be a beginning)
DIFFERENT (ENT is like ANT)
CONDUCTOR (TOR seems an ending)
The last three words aer easy to get, for there are few possibilities,
but the word divisions in the last two words are particularly hard.
