You could be the word:


If you add a letter, you can make:

OLIVE - a fruit.

If you remove a letter, you can make:

LIV - i.e. 54 in Roman numerals.

  • $\begingroup$ Quick there :) I was planning to make it 'five and four is what you get'. Would've probably been slightly harder $\endgroup$ May 14, 2020 at 11:50
