there. I came across a puzzle about a missing letter in a primary school exercise booklet for selective high school exams in Australia. The puzzle is the one shown in the picture below. It looks like the missing letter is from a word of eight letters. Thank you for your help!

Looks to me the answer is

IMITATED, with the A missing

The answer could also be

TIMIDEST, with the letter S missing :)

    $\begingroup$ Thank you, Mr Pie. It is possible to have an S here and make a funny word. :) $\endgroup$ – Michael May Oct 7 at 11:33

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, compared to the accepted answer, I knew mine wasn't the intended answer. But, as they say, expect the unexpected! Thanks for the sharing the puzzle :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Oct 7 at 11:35
  • $\begingroup$ That's true, Mr Pie. In fact, for problems like this, there may not be an intended answer. All reasonable possibilities are equally acceptable. Only, some may be comparatively more plausible. Thanks again for your participation and your suggestion of the solution. $\endgroup$ – Michael May Oct 7 at 11:45
