MEALS

T cannot be the last letter, because SHOOT was 0.

For MEANT and GIANT the only two letters in common were 3rd A and 4th N.

If 0, then N is fourth, because the only change (not including the T->S, which is already disproven) from MEANT to MEALS was N->L, meaning that N has to be fourth.

If 1, then A is third, because the only change from MEANT to MEALS (not including T->S) was N->L. As shown below:

MEANT

MEALS

If it has been striked, it was disproven before. Now, since the only change was N-> L and the score dropped, A has to be the right letter.

Logic does not follow. There is nothing to disprove the S. ie it is possible that both +++N+ and ++++S score 1pt.

you are right, fab. My bad.

first

MEANS

If 1, then S is disproven because it was the only change from MEANT (T->S) and the score didnt change so the point is not T or S. Then my other proof works.

If 0, then T is last, because the only change was T->S and the score went down one. However, this is impossible because the first three words ended in T and were all 0.

As MEANT = 1 , GIANT = 2, then GI = 1. ++ANT must = 1. MEALS=MEANS=MEANT = 1 disprove N and T
