A barrel of water weighs 20 pounds. What must you add to it to make it weigh 12 pounds?  [;)]

There is a common English word that is seven letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains a common English word - from seven letters right on down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing a letter at a time? [;)]

Right, working backwards might be best here.

So single letters in common use would be 'A' and 'I'

A
An
Ant
Anti
Antic
Antics

Nope, only six...... must try harder!

STRAFINGS = More than one strafing (see below)
STRAFING = An attack of ground targets with gunfire from a low-flying aircraft
STARING = Fastening an earnest and prolonged gaze on an object
SATING = Satisfying a desire or appetite
STING = Any sharp organ of offense and defense, esp. connected with a poison gland
NITS = Eggs of a louse or other small insect
SIT = To rest upon the haunches, or the lower extremity of the trunk of the body
IS = The third person singular of the verb "be", in the indicative mood, present tense
I = The first person subjective pronoun

Oops, I got it wrong, I started with a nine-letter word.  Rats!  [:-[]
Do I at least get partial credit?  [:-\]  Please  [:-'(]

since you're doing the worst job in the world by answering omid's question so you'll get the credit [:)] [:)] [:)]

But do a little more worse and find a 7 letter word [;)]

Omid, as I said, you give us questions that are so difficult to answer. I have tried to find a seven-word answer, but I can only find this eight-word answer:

HONESTLY = in an honest manner
HONESTY = the quality of being honest
HONEST = truthful and trustworthy
HONES = hone (third person), see below
HONE = to sharpen a blade with a hard fine-grained stone
ONE = being a single thing or unit
ON = in a position above, in contact with, and supported by
O = a variation of “oh”; or one of the four ABO blood groups

I remain diligently at work on this problem.  [::)] [;D]  Do not give up hope on me!

omid is even impressed by your eight letters word [:)] [:)] [:)]
But since omid want you to work a little more hard, so here is the next one [:-X]


What six letter word in the English language contains ten other words without rearranging any of its letters? [;)] [;)] [;)]

I have failed you again, darn  [:-\].  Here is the word I found with 13 words inside without rearranging the letters, but one of them is considered slang. Do I get partial credit?  [:o)]  Or is there more to it than this?  I heard 13 is an unlucky number.

BELIED = misrepresented

BELIE = to misrepresent
BE = to exist
BEE = the hairy flying hymenopteran insect
BEL = a unit of acoustical energy (= 10 decibels, of course)
BED = a piece of furniture for sleeping or resting upon
BLED = emitted or lost blood
BI = shortening of bisexual (slang)
BID = to offer a price or fee
EL = an elevated railway
LI = a Chinese linear unit of measure equal to about 1/3 mile (adopted into the English language)
LIE = make a knowingly false statement
LIED = made a knowingly false statement
I = first person subjective pronoun

Omid is VERY impressed with your knowledge, omid wish omid was as intelligent as you but [:-'(] [:-'(] [:-'(]

omid'll give you the answer

The word is Spared. The ten words are:
Spa, Spar, Spare, Pa, Par, Pare, Pared, Are, Re, and Red.

Does omid answer makes sense to DiscoverDave????? [:-\]
