In this teaser, you are to start with the letter 'U', and then each time add a letter and shuffle it to make a new word. You need to continue this process until you reach the word 'PRODUCE'.

Not including 'U', you must do this in six (6) turns.

Good luck.

If you add a letter to the beginning of each of the 8 words below, you can create another word. That word may not be spelled correctly, but it will sound like a valid word.

knee
sir
wash
send
corn

sun
girly

If you do this correctly, the letters you add, when read downward, will spell out a word that represents what you are looking for when listening to directions.
