My wife is a school teacher and a good way of keeping the children occupied is by giving them a puzzle or riddle to work out. The headteacher emailed the following word association riddle to all the teachers and it's got children and teachers stumped.
I wonder if the collective brains of Preys can help?
This riddle is based on the TV programme Only Connect, where contestants have to link up 4 words which all have a connection. For example:
Homer, Marge, Lisa and Bart = All characters in The Simpsons.
So in the list of 16 words below, you need to try and make a connection between 4 of the words and say what that connection is. There are four connections in total. Each word may only be used once.
Orange Rose Cottage Apple Flat Blackberry Warehouse Game Alphabet Kate Mulberry Office Custard Holly Samsung Bungalow
I have been staring at this all morning and have come up with two possible connections.
Cottage, Apple, Custard and Game = All types of pie Mulberry, Rose, Holly, Kate = All types of bushes.
However, this leaves me with a load of nonsense words with zero connections. Can you guys do any better?
