A five-letter word needs to be determined. Several clues are provided in the grid above to help guess what it is.

In the column marked "2," you have words that share exactly two letters in the same position as the hidden word. For example, if the hidden word was TREAT, in column 2 we could put SWEET.

Column 1 contains words that share exactly one letter in the same position as the hidden word. In the example above, TREAT being the hidden word, column 1 could have PRIOR.

Column 0 has words that do not share any letter in the same position as the hidden word. For our example, column 0 could have SPOON.

Now, find the hidden word.
