If Charity wants to be happy on Mondays,

If Mark's thing falls into water,

and if Velma eats fruits with her fingers,

What would Phoebe's favorite insect be ?

Hint

All non-function words in each of the first three lines relate to a common concept. The three concepts belong to a pattern, which will help you deduce the concept linked to the fourth line... and hopefully the favorite insect.

I think it could be:

Zoraptera

Because pattern could be:

Charity -> Mondays
Mark -> Water
Velma -> Fingers
First letter is always shifted by 10 for next word. C=3, M=13, W=23, V=22, F=32-26=6
So Phoebe -> insect that starts with Z

  • $\begingroup$ nice try ! however, all non-functionnal words are important in this riddle, not just the first and last ones. I've edited a hint. $\endgroup$ – Soltius Mar 25 at 15:01
