In this teaser there are three words in a sentence that are all connected in some way by a fourth word. The connected words are in capitals, so all you have to do is think of the fourth word that connects them all. For example:
The school MASTER realized that the young BOY had a great deal of hidden TALENT.
The answer would be SCOUT as in Scout Master, Boy Scout and Talent Scout.
Now try and guess the connecting word in the following sentences.
1) He used to have such lovely long GOLDEN hair, but now his parting had SPREAD drastically and he had developed a rather prominent BALD patch.
2) Ever since he was a CHILD, who never liked to get WASHED, the boy always loved trying to solve TEASERS.
3) The robber burst into the FRUIT shop and demanded CASH whilst waving his GUN at the cashier.
EAGLE = Golden Eagle, Spread Eagle, Bald Eagle
BRAIN = Brain Child, Brain-Washed, Brain Teaser
MACHINE = Fruit Machine, Cash Machine, Machine Gun
