    Question homework questions

    Hi,
    My daughter and I are struggling with 2 unanswered questions from her english homework,
    words that have 2 different meanings, i.e.
    "a quick form of abstinence" answer; fast.


    "in electronicsa conductor leads to questioning closely" 5 letters

    "a sum of money used as sports equipment" 4 letters

    Any help gratefully appreciated!

    Goodness, it sounds more like the Times crossword than it does homework. Where exactly does your daughter attend school? Harvard?

    Here are my feeble guesses:

    "in electronics a conductor leads to questioning closely" wired

    "a sum of money used as sports equipment"; nets

    You're welcome, but in all honesty I doubt my guesses are correct. I pulled them out of thin air. The second one, nets, is definitely wrong. The clue is singular, a sum of money, whereas the answer I provided is plural, nets. And as for the first one, wired, I can't see that being the correct answer. Sorry to have let you down, and hope you'll come back and share the correct answers with us when you find them.

    All the best,
