    Re: enquiry about similar words

    "unangry" would it be counted as the 3rd one?

    But actually you wrote the question inccorectly as I saw this question before and it was tricky one. The real version was ;

    Think of words ending in 'gry'. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in "the English language". What is the third word? If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

    If this is what you are trying to solve the answer is Language. It doesnt ask what the third GRY word is it asks what the third word is!!

    The correct asnwer is Language
