BORAS ?

A city in Sweden (thank you, Mr. S!!!)

If the score is 1 or above then R is the third letter, because the only switch from BORES was E->A, ad since the letter in common between PURER and BORES were E and R and they were both 1, meaning it was one of the two, and only E was changed, butthe score stayed the same, meaning that R had to be the third letter.

If the score is 0 then E is the fourth letter because the only change from BORES was E->A, and since the only letters in common from PURER and BORES were R and E, and they were both 1, meaning it was one if the two. Since E was changed, the fourth must be E.

PARER ?

If PARER=2 than A is 2nd. PURER=1 and ???E? is proven. A is the only change and thus the only additional letter that can score.

Also, as a side note to Aaryan -- your first proof is not really correct. It didn't matter but I thought you should know. BORAS=1+ could have been true even if the R was not 3rd. Including all guesses before yours, puRER=1 and BOREs=1 could result in one of the common letters ??RE? scoring, but it could also result in the last R in pureR and either the B or O from BOres scoring.

This is the faulty assumption in your proof -

since the letter in common between PURER and BORES were E and R and they were both 1, meaning it was one of the two

(agreed JDave, as the important bit was ok I accepted it)

PETAL - if 0 then F is the first letter as that would rule out the TA(L) from FATAL - 1 and the first A is also ruled out from PARER - 1 which is the established E.

So check it

PETAL = 1 = FETAL

PURER = 1 means not the P in PETAL. AEGIS = 0 means not the E. So it is the T or the L.

PEDAL

if 0 then T is 3rd as PE_AL = 0 means PETAL = 1 leaving the T.

if 1 then T can't be 3rd. T being 3rd would force the D in PEDAL to be 3rd as PETAL = 1. Since this can't be T is not 3rd so L is 5th from above.

Okey Dokey. That was a lucky guess. Here's the new word:

?????

CRUST - ?

CRUST - 1

Already sinking after the first blow.

DOUGH - ? (lucky strike)

FLUNK

##### Share on other sites

CREST

A lucky shot. If 0 then U is third because the only change from CRUST to CREST was U->E.

Sorry for the delay. My computer is unhappy right now.
