  • $\begingroup$ The 2nd puzzle is correct and the 3rd has the correct words DATE and STOCK. Also the word GROUND was correct before you edited it. $\endgroup$ Jan 11, 2016 at 0:44
  • $\begingroup$ Now it's all correct with the exception of EXCHANGE and VALUE. I should say the word after STACK was probably ill-chosen because it's not a general knowledge term, but computer science specific. $\endgroup$ Jan 11, 2016 at 1:06
  • $\begingroup$ TRACE is right. Good guess with OVER but overdue is one word. $\endgroup$ Jan 11, 2016 at 1:09
  • $\begingroup$ @DaniilAgashiyev 'back' instead of 'over'? $\endgroup$
