A secret word is hidden within each 5x5 grid of 25 letters.
Decode this 3- to 6-letter word using clues.
The numbers around the grid refer to clue boxes.
Each letter of the word belongs to a numbered clue box.
A clue box contains the following evidence:
The number above the box indicates which row or column contains the letter.
The indicator at the bottom is one of the following:
- a number indicates the point value of the letter.
- "V" indicates the letter is a vowel (AEIOU).
- "C" indicates the letter is a consonant.
In the example above, the 4th letter is easy to find.
It has a point value of 3, in the row or column numbered 4.
Therefore, it can only be "M".
The letter for the first box has a value of 1.
There are two letters in column one with 1 point.
So the first letter could be either "L" or "N".
The second letter is a vowel in column 2, and could be "O" or "I".
There are several consonants in row 3 for the third letter.
It can't be H or J as their point values would be too high.
The fifth letter can only be "A" or "U".
The last letter is either "L" or "N".
The value of all letters in the secret word is 8.
Use some deduction and elimination skills to decode "NORMAL".
Verify the word using the total point value. (eg, NORMAL yields 8).
