There are 3 Rings with “T” in the center. In each ring, letters are distinctly different - 16 in the outer, 8 in the middle, 4 in the inner rings.

Hit the Bulls Eye by making sixteen different four letter words ending in “T”.

As an example, 2 are filled... $UNIT$, $KNIT$. Complete the rest.

    $\begingroup$ But... but... the number of fields doubles each right, except for the first time, it quadruples! (From 1 to 4.) You're missing the ring with two segments! ;) $\endgroup$

Edit:

The words in NNW are

LINT and PINT

and not

LENT and PENT

since we already use

E


These are the answers going anti-clockwise:

Answers to the Puzzle

B, G - Gait, Bait (A, I)
L, P - Lent, Pent (E, N)
A, R - Aunt, Runt (U, N)
S, F - Slat, Flat (L, A)
C, W - Chat, What (H, A)
Z, N - Zest, Nest (E, S)
M, H - Mast, Hast $\qquad$ INENDED SOLUTION: Most, Host (found by @OmegaKrypton)

Also, something extra:

The middle word is "stain" or "saint" (as an anagram) :)

    $\begingroup$ @Uvc It is the old english form of "have". It still counts as a word, but it is archaic and not part of modern english. If you hast not, you should look at the answer above ;) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This answer uses two "E"s in the second ring. If I understand the rules correctly, this is not allowed. $\endgroup$

Note:

As @IvánNokonoko mentioned in the comment, the NNE grid in the second layer (from outside) can also be R instead of A to form (GRIT and BRIT). Thanks!
