# A really tough riley-riddle

Here comes (I think) a really tough one:

My prefix is interior,
My suffix is a neu found land.
My infix is in a problem,
I really am early

Can you solve this with $$0$$ hints?

• @riskymysteries Not necessarily true - there are plenty of Riley riddles in the more chronological prefix-infix-suffix format. It's just a matter of personal preference.

• "self-discovery", the minus sign is in problems, no idea about early

• Nice answer. But it was not what I thought. Jul 28, 2020 at 18:47

Are you

My suffix is a neu found land.

st -- There are streets named nue, streets are land.

My infix is in a problem,

irs -- Abbreviation for Internal Revenue Service. Taxes, fees, etc gives you problems.

I really am early

• I'd recommend adding this under your other answer rather than creating a whole new one as a 'second guess:' edit Jul 28, 2020 at 19:19
• @BeastlyGerbil I've seen plenty of users do this, is it not normal? Jul 28, 2020 at 19:21
• Generally not for riddles where the first answer has been confirmed to be wrong, but it's your choice!. Also on another note, I highly doubt any of these clues will give a company. It's very easy to find some random company called X that does Y, so unless they are a big firm I would imagine that this is wrong, and I also recommend for future to try and avoid using them (unless it fits perfectly) Jul 28, 2020 at 19:23
• @BeastlyGerbil I assumed that the reason the title had really tough, because there are words that are uncommon. Jul 28, 2020 at 19:24
• I think its more tough as the clues are vague. It will still probably contain reasonably common words Jul 28, 2020 at 19:25
