The question relates to a recent puzzle: One is outstanding, another doesn't belong : Says Grandpa
Take the word PARENT for example.
If you take 2 consecutive letters out, the remaining four letters give you valid words:
RENT PENT PANT PART PARE
Note you do not even have to anagram those 4 letters.
However, if you put another restriction:
Take ANY TWO LETTERS out from that word, the remaining four letters give you valid words
then it does not work. If you take A and E out, the remaining 4 letters do not form a word even if you allow anagrams.
It is very hard to find words with that restriction. So here is the question:
Find a six letter word which is a body part such that, if you take any 2 letters out, the remaining 4 letters or their anagram form words that are in Merriam Webster dictionary. No abbreviations, proper nouns or acronyms.
The anagram of the original word itself describes a type of material.
Another interesting thing about the same word: the same restriction described above also holds for taking any 1 letter out.
As many of you have thought of this already
Are there 4 letter words with consonants only?
