Please finish the title of this puzzle!

Five different things, quite common

All come in different size, shape and colour

Each word has 3 different consonants

Five words share and show the 3 same consonants at same exact location

Look at them carefully

See anything special?

No programming please

Example only

Let us say the words are 12A3E 12I3E 12O3A 12A3O 12E3U The consonants are 1,2 and 3 and are in exact same location in every word. They can appear twice also in the same word. All words must fit the size, shape and colour requirements.

    $\begingroup$ Off the top off my head, I can come up with at least a handful of such word sets, so I’m guessing hundreds of them must exist. Apart from the three consonants bit, the other clues are very vague, so it’s hard to tell if I am looking carefully at the correct word set. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ 5 seemingly random words with 3 shared consonants at the same location. Seems like a brute force without using the computer. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ And, on behalf of the grammar Gestapo, it is consonants, not consonents. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 21, 2018 at 15:23

    $\begingroup$ @MariusMatutiae Instead of carping about it in the comments, you have an Edit button for a reason. Feel free to use it to correct spelling and grammar errors in puzzles where the "errors" aren't likely to be part of the puzzle. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


FURTHER and FURTHER EDIT- there is a change in my options
I guess these are


And common letters(consonants) are

B, L and S at the same position in all these 5 words.

To complete the title of the puzzle-

Five different things and five different clues and five different -words(All are plurals ) each having one different vowel( a, e, i, o, u).

    $\begingroup$ Same 3 consonents in all words must be used at the same exact location. Like Bread and Broad. B, R and D are same consonents in exact same location. Of course you can use any of these consonents twice in the same word $\endgroup$
