The prefix is a hook, but I removed one part... But it is also locked, and I forgot the key.

(Just to share with you all, I am eating a salad with a raspberry vinaigrette.)

The infix is my favorite numbers, which are: 1, 19, 20, 18 and 15.

The suffix is like the first letter of the prefix. You just need to circle around your house to find the correct answer...

(After finding the correct answer, you must take note that it sounds like that letter, but you should not take it literally. It may be a different spelling but still sounds alike.)

What word I am looking for???

Hint 1:

The prefix is the word 'hook', but with something done to it...

Hint 2:

Remove one letter from the word 'hook'.

1 Answer 1


Is the word:


By taking

HOK and passing it through a vigenere cipher with the key FORGOT, you get CAT.

Putting this together with

ASTRO, from your infix and the suffix 'PHE'(You can get the letter 'P' by doing a ROT13 on the letter C[first letter of prefix]).

  • $\begingroup$ The suffix part is still wrong, using vigenere cipher is wrong. Look at the clue in the prefix, answer it correctly and the +50 rep is all yours $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Is it that if you do a ROT13 on the letter C, you get P, which sounds like PHE? $\endgroup$
