Alude is not a word to my knowledge. Could be wrong tho. If so, am sure to be soon corrected. Elude meaning to avoid or allude meaning to reference...?

EDIT: no problem, only mentioned it cause that's one I often mix up. like affect and effect. corrected above.

O sorry meant elude. I guess I got it mixed up with allude. So do you take it out, or I lose points, or what? Sorry again :( Edit: looked it up, and alude is a word. In french. Lol sorry.

U is in third place

SHUTE has 2 => 1 for E in last place (already proven) => S can't be in 1st place because SLAPS has 0 => H can't be in 2nd place because WHOLE has 1 for E => leaving with U in 3rd place or T in 4th place

ALUDE has 2 => 1 for E in last place (already proven) => A can't be in 1st place because APPLE has 1 for E => L can't be in 2nd place because SLAPS has 0 => leaving with U in 3rd place or D in 4th place

T and D both can't be in 4th place => leaving U in 3rd place.
