Operation Sharp-ectomy on

Published in Brain Teasers

Six words have had their sharp things removed. The sharp things 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 sharp thing 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: brad, nail, pin, piton, spike, stake
Group B: eeve, insrai, raha, rnlr, ufesbe, waebst


brad + eeve = bereaved (BeReAveD)
nail + ufesbe = unfeasible (uNfeAsIbLe)
pin + raha = piranha (PIraNha)
piton + insrai = inspiration (insPIraTiON)
spike + rnlr = sprinkler (SPrInKlEr)
stake + waebst - wastebasket (waSTebAsKEt)
