Three at a time

Each group has three words that are spelled the same, except for one letter (each group describes a different set of words). Example: king, ring, wing.

1a) a military rank
1b) a landed estate
1c) an elected official

2a) to turn upside down
2b) to cover completely
2c) to create for the first time

3a) a sticky substance
3b) jewel
3c) slang for "leg"

4a) to abuse verbally
4b) to make a new version
4c) to restore to life


  1. 3. gum/gam/gem

  2. 2. invert/invest/invent

    Thought I would argue it's a bit of misdirection to use that definition for invest.

  3. 4. revile/revise/revive

  4. 1) major, manor, mayor
    2) invert, invest, invent
    3) gum, gem, gam
    4) revile, revise, revive

    And aren't all puzzles an excercise in misdirection? ;-)
