Here are three short 'property' puzzles I wrote.
In each puzzle the words to the left of the colon all have a (non-trivial) property that the word to the right of the colon does not have. What is that property? Note that it is a different property in each puzzle, and that they are ordered roughly in increasing difficulty.
- DANGLE, HEIGHT, LEASE, RANGE, SELECTION, TRAP, TRUSTIES : EARTH
- CARBON, COPPER, IRON, NEON, SILICON, TIN, XENON : GOLD
- ADJUST, ALHAMBRA, CALAIS, DRAMA, MAYOR, SMOKES, PANIC : ADVISE
An answer containing the solution to all three will be accepted.
