Curtail 1Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
When you curtail a word, you remove the last letter and still have a valid word. You will be given clues for the two words, longer word first.
Example: Begin -> Heavenly body
Answer: The words are Start and Star.
1. Chauffeurs -> Golf club
2. Paid transportation -> Additional cost
3. Astronomical length -> Scan a sentence
4. Eight furlongs -> Wire measure
5. Millionth of a metre -> Very small
6. Force of movement (plural) -> Short time period
7. Redirect -> Deep swimmer
8. Walked -> Vast grassland
Bonus: Take the eight curtailed letters and form a one-word anagram.
HintThe words start with these letters:
Answer1. Drivers -> Driver
2. Taxi -> Tax
3. Parsec -> Parse
4. Mile -> Mil
5. Micron -> Micro
6. Momenta -> Moment
