If a cored GUAVA is a GUVA (losing its middle letter), or a cored LYCHEE is LYEE (losing its inner pair of letters), then what cored fruit can replace the X’s to make words? (No mixing needed. And note – the letter/s lost make up the fruit’s precise pith.)
PS – in case you’re wondering: no genuine Xs appear. (And what other nobbled nibblies, or similar twiddled sets, can be constructed? Feel free to set a fresh list.)
SOLUTION NEXT WEEK BB453 SOLUTION: All 12 movies are based in Melbourne: Death in Brunswick, On the Beach, Dogs in Space, Any Questions For Ben, My Year Without Sex, The Wog Boy, The Castle, The Club, Monkey Grip, Romper Stomper, Look Both Ways, Love and Other Catastrophes (Kenny, Malcolm, Noise, Proof, Spotswood). Other flicks may fit the bill."
