Mind Bender # 6 : Solution

The idea of introducing these monthly challenges was to help you to stretch your thinking. But sadly, some people are simply using Google to discover the solutions.

This month, the challenge was to come up with the common words that contained five consecutive Vowels and Consonants.

The emphasis being on “consecutive” and “common”

I’m not sure about you … but I don’t consider words like: Anschluss & Postphrenic to be exactly everyday words.

So, let me tell you the individual words those who embraced the spirit of the challenge came up with.

There’s only one common word with 5 consecutive Vowels

  • Queueing

But a few more with 5 consecutive Consonants

  • Witchcraft
  • Nightclub
  • Birthplace
  • Gypsy
  • Rhythm (actually has six)

So, how did you make out — working it through by yourself?

Next week, I’ll give your challenge for June — and you will certainly need to give that some thought.
