# Word Chains

Here are the clues to a Word Chain: A → tail end of cat → headgear → deer → vital organ → fireside.

The solution is, A → AT → HAT → HART → HEART → HEARTH.

Each link in the chain is formed by adding one letter to the previous link, without changing the order of its letters.

The following are some more word chains that I created. Try to solve them before looking for the solutions!

1. U → ourselves → employ → a dodge → excite → awaken → drink to excess.
2. A → Mum → floor-covering → ship’s officer → Roman mother → pedagogue → supreme skill.
3. E → Church of England → solid H2O → former Indian coin → cooking ingredient → part of cricket bat → married.

## Solution

1. U → US →  USE → RUSE → ROUSE →  AROUSE → CAROUSE.
2. A → MA → MAT → MATE → MATER → MASTER → MASTERY.
3. E → C.E. → ICE → PICE → SPICE → SPLICE → SPLICED.

Can you come up with more examples?
