In the on-air puzzle, you must complete a two-word phrase with a word that starts with the third and fourth letters of the word given to you. For example, given "baseball," the answer would be "season," which starts with S-E, the third and fourth letters in "baseball."

Challenge From Last Week: Think of a six-letter word that ends in a silent letter. Remove that letter and you'll get a five-letter word that ends in two silent letters. What are the words?

The answer: Corpse, corps

The winner: Ed McDougal of Rockville Centre, N.Y.

Next Week's Challenge: Re-arrange the letters in the word "egomaniac" to spell a sign seen in many stores.
