  1. 1. (The second line on my keyboard has numbers πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ So, do I use QWERTY line or ASDFGH line??)
    Actual 2nd row on my laptop: can’t form a word with digit πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
    Lemme use QWERTY: the word is PROPRIETOR / TYPEWRITER (if letter repetition not allowed, NO WORD can be formed!!)
    Lemme use ASDFGH: no 10-letter word can be formed, with or without letter repetition.

    2. H-to-O: Water!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€

    3. The letters are the β€˜odd’ letters in the alphabet series. (ie.: 1, 3, 5, 7). And i guess all vowels Incl Y, since it sounds like a vowel in certain cases) are in odd positions.

    3. You are picking up every alternate alphabet from A-Z, the spacing between them corresponds to the grouping made five at a time in the original sequence.

    1. Using only the letters on the second line of the keyboard (the first line for alphabets), form a 10-letter word.
    Can we use any letter more than once? If yes, the word ‘Typewriter’!

    2. HIJKLMNO – The letters mean a liquid. Find it.
    Water, H20 (H to O) right? I had heard this before, so I hope that does not disqualify me!

    3. What is the basis for the sequence of the strange three-lettered words : ACE GIK MOQ SUWY

    They are alternate letters of the alphabet? My CAT tuned brain can only think of that! 😦
