The periodic table contains 14 elements in total that own a single-letter symbol. Those symbols are BCFHIKNOPSUVWY. Amazingly there is a Melbourne suburb (and a Sydney suburb) that can both lose left or right to reveal eight different symbols from this list. Name both locations.
(And with duplicates allowed, can you name a NSW town of nine letters?)
And lastly, can you unravel these clues, where the answers use only those 11 letters, with zero repeats?
- Sort of castle (6)
- High boot (6)
- Squelch (6)
- Dream on! (3,4)
- Spry and mischievous (6 and 7)
- Sit on it! (7)
- Monsters (7)
- Two poets (both 7)
Share your eurekas below. And offer your own clues, manipulating the same 14 symbols, and using byline and number to mark each clue. Let’s adhere to the no-repeat rule.
