I hope you have a large vocab because here's a question where you'll need only one word.

Andy a waiter, didn't _____ that what was in the drink was_____and that without it, the drink would have _____ to the customers

Can you use only one word in three different forms to fill in the blanks?


I used only one word and added spaces to make it a different word.
Example: notable, not able, no table.

If it means anything, the words made can be found in a Websters Dictionary, but it shouldn't help much.

    $\begingroup$ Sorry, but you are not using one word in three different forms. You are using different words that can be combined to make the same word. Additionally, one of the words you are using in a grammatically incorrect way. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Kevin I'm open to suggestions on how I should use it. Tice is not a common word, so had to figure out how I was supposed to use it. But seriously if you know how to make it correct I'd love to make it better $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ There aren't many references to tice; none of the online dictionaries I'd normally use (OED, Chambers, Merriam-Webster) have it. The few references I could find have tice as a verb, an old form of entice, so "no tice" is awkward, as enticing as it may be to use it for this puzzle. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


It is :


Because :

Andy a waiter, didn't notice that what was in the drink was not ice and that without it, the drink would have no tice to the customers.

  • $\begingroup$ Actually your overall answer is correct! The last blank is wrong though $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Marius Yes, I saw that, but it doesn't seem to make sense with the sentence, does it? $\endgroup$
