Vegetable-ectomy on

Published in Brain Teasers

Six words have had their vegetables removed. The vegetables have been placed into Group A. The remaining letters of each word have been placed into Group B. Your task is to reconstitute the words by merging each vegetable with the proper set of letters. Other than merging the two groups together, there is no rearranging of the letters. Example: sand + pne = spanned (SpANneD).

Group A: bean, beet, corn, kale, pea, radish
Group B: acdio, bning, lieb, nfi, rthig, scagot


bean + rthig = breathing (BrEAthiNg)
beet + nfi = benefit (BEnEfiT)
corn + acdio = accordion (aCcORdioN)
kale + lieb = likeable (liKeAbLE)
pea + scagot = scapegoat (scaPEgoAt)
radish + bning = brandishing (bRAnDISHing)
