Friday Jumble - 2

Unscramble the 4 words(no plurals) and enter in the boxes below. Now select only the circled letters and unscramble them to answer the question at the bottom.

Everyone found the previous one too easy. Hope this one provides atleast a little more of a challenge :-)

Email bbalaji [at] sbcglobal [dot] net for hints/solution verification. Comments on 'fun' level, comparative difficulty, etc. are welcome too :-)

HI,
This was a good break. I actually guessed the answer to the final clue, before I even unscrambled the rest. I have emailed my answered to you. It was fun.

I had difficulty with the last clue.
Overall, it was a very nice exercise.

and the 2nd one is not clasp :) (sundar found that one) darn! and i thot i was so careful this time :)

i guess i gotta follow your earlier idea and make the multiple answers a 'feature' to make the puzzle more difficult!

Good one.

The second one is also not 'claps'. Yep, the 3rd one is def not 'lamina'. :)

Actually, it seems more fun to find multiple answers and then find the right one!!!

I guess, making up these puzzles must be even more challenging than unscrambling them!!

Sundar, Raamkumar, Faffer, Sumant, Kaps, Krishna - thank u for the emails.

Krishna, the jumbles r typically quite easy. The only challenge is usually posed by the final answer. Hope future puzzles turn out to be more challenging :)

The Solution:
WHEAT
SCALP
ANIMAL
ERASER

A CLEAN SWEEP :)
