2. I’m one letter short to smell really bad

3. I’m five letters short to be an arctic whale

4. I’m three letters short to wear me like a crown

5. I’m three letters short to make you cry

7. I’m one letter short to tidy up your hair

8. I’m three letters short to be painted on the wall

9. I’m four letters short to pinch you really hard

10. I’m four letters short to be an infectious disease

I have a question.

Assuming that these are letters you're referring to, which I think is a pretty safe guess, do they have to be in order? For example, could I have mural and fraud if the letters were 'a' and 'u'?.

For example

I'm three letters short to be a sweet, red, edible fruit

The solution is: AP(PLE)

In the end you need to assemble those letters outside the brackets

I think this helps

I'm always giving up way too many hints <_<

Oh, wow. That's what I thought at first but it seemed too difficult to make. This appears to be a very well-constructed riddle...

I'm being extra nice today so...

I have shown you in the apple example, you probably read it. I have shown that the letters on the end of the word are EXTRA, or better to say the letters that I need are short of them!!!

So your guesses are good, but the brackets are misplaced!!!

3.belug(a) - actually if this was correct it would have been - b(eluga)

(na)rwhal - this is correct, but it's na(rwhal)

5.oni(on) - this is correct but it's on(ion)

The colored letters are the ones you need! And all of the letters you get the same way! So brackets only go on the letters at the end!

I hope that you understand now what I'm saying! It's probably a mistake to give so many clues, I could have left you to figure it out on your own but I have a teaching instinct and I honestly like explaining things, so you're in luck!

This is the disease that I need (how funny this sounds ) but not that word, I need the other version, cause this way I'm not getting the right letters!

Nice thinking!
