This question already has an answer here:
There is a common English word that is nine letters long.
Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter.
What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?
The word before the letters are removed starts with the letter S.
the last letter of the word before letters are removed is g.
