Solve the clues and arrive at a word. Let's call the word X.

Combine the letters/words obtained from each clue and arrive at X.

Places with lots of noise and eager eyeballs. Take the last three letters from this word.
An article.
I'm a cow but quieter. Take the first three letters.

Split the word X into two parts namely X1 and X2.

What would X1 & X2 do together?

It does not make logical sense but makes literal sense.

Hint 1:-

The place with noise and eager eyeballs starts with an 'a'.

  • $\begingroup$ Are the clues in the order of the letters or do we have to rearrange them... $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


My answer:

Space Shuttle Mission STS-41C


ARENAS = Places with lots of noise and eager eyeballs

A = An Article

BEEF = A cow but quieter (because it's dead)

Putting it all together, we get X = NASABEE. So, X1 = NASA and X2 = BEE.

In 1984, on the Space Shuttle Mission STS-41C, NASA's Challenger space shuttle took bees into space as part of a Shuttle Student Involvement Project Experiment to study the honeycomb structure built by bees in zero gravity.

This answer also ties in with the title - If the answers were on a mission, what would it be? (sounds like bee)

It does not make logical sense but makes literal sense.
Answer:- Honeymoon

  • $\begingroup$ You got all the words right. But the mission isn't what I had in mind. Remember the mission makes no logical sense with the words. I'm accepting the answer. Can I make some edits to the mission alone (without removing anything, your answer makes absolute sense) :) $\endgroup$ Oct 30, 2016 at 14:59
  • $\begingroup$ Absolutely, go right ahead $\endgroup$
