    The word “It’s”
    gave the answer away and I got it before the words. Had a little trouble with studio and only got it because I already had the letters. I have a question for you. What do you mean when you say you had to back into a word?

    Pat,

    That’s when you can’t unjumble a word (or you just don’t have the patience to work it out) so you figure out the big answer (usually not all that hard) and see what remaining letters you are going to need for the big answer. That lets you know the letters from the clue word that’s stumping you. Those letters have to go into the circles, somehow. It’s always been enough to figure out the stumper. — YUR

    Thanks. Guess that’s what I did today with the word studio.
