Six Letter Strikeout (Posted on 2013-12-10) Difficulty: 1 of 5
Cross out six letters so that the remaining letters, without altering their sequence will spell a familiar English word:
             B S A I N X L E A T N T E A R S

Solution Solution with explanation | Comment 5 of 6 |

I removed the bolding from the letters S I X L E T T E R S,

and underlined the letters that remain.


B
S A I N X L E A T N T E A R S

Bringing the remaining letters together gives the solution:


BANANA

(The trick is that we are not crossing out 6 letters, but the letters in the phrase "six letters.")
