    A cradle is an agricultural tool, a form of the scythe

    A cradle is an agricultural tool, a form of the scythe, used to reap grain. It is scythe with an arrangement of fingers attached to the snath, such that the cut grain falls upon the fingers and can be cleanly laid down in a row for collection.

    The word "snath" is closest to ..... .
    1. handle
    2. blade
    3. axe
    4. hammer

    I would choose "handle". However, Answer key went for "blade".

    You were right and the key was wrong, as a google sarch would have told you.
