Hangman game backward version 5 (Aggie's version was #4) - guess what was the question:

fill in an "a" - It's a lethal to throw and it's destructive.
fill in a "d" - It's brave, and it's strong.
fill in an "e" - It's brown, and it's reddish-brown.
fill in a "t" - It's fast, and it's fastening

Again, your answer can be in the form of:

The question was: _ p p l e

followed by explanation.

Now, I know it's an easy one, hence I will not accept any answer that does not explains all 8 answers.

The question was

b o l _

It's lethal to throw and it's destructive

bola, which is both a South American throwing weapon and a volcano in Papua New Guinea (which can be destructive).

It's brave, and it's strong

bold, which is a synonym for brave as well as the common term for strong text.

It's brown, and it's reddish-brown

bole, which is the trunk of a tree (hence brown) and a shade of reddish-brown on its own.

It's fast, and it's fastening

bolt, which is a definition for a fast dash, as well as a piece of hardware used to fasten two things together.

The question was bol_

fill in an "a" - It's a lethal to throw and it's destructive.

bola - a throwing weapon made of weights on the ends of an interconnected cord

fill in a "d" - It's brave, and it's strong.

bold - bold is a synonym of brave and in bold is strong text

fill in an "e" - It's brown, and it's reddish-brown.

bole - the trunk or stem of a tree (so it's brown)

fill in a "t" - It's fast, and it's fastening

bolt - to bolt is to fasten (something) with a metal pin or bar, in particular. Also a flash of lightning (which is fast)

    $\begingroup$ True, TroyAndAbed did get his answer in before me - Alex did say he would only accept an answer that explained all 8 answers though, and this one missed a couple! $\endgroup$ – Bailey M Jun 26 '15 at 13:19
