The correct answer to yesterday's puzzle is c. No, Chewbacca isn't from Switzerland (nor is Yoda from Dagobah or Geronimo Gil technically from Mexico City). The answer is c because both parts of each analogy stem have the same pattern of vowels (V) and consonants (C) throughout the length of the word(s):
- Hiroki Kuroda (C-V-C-V-C-V C-V-C-V-C-V) and Japan (C-V-C-V-C)
- Geronimo Gil (C-V-C-V-C-V-C-V C-V-C) and Mexico City (C-V-C-V-C-V C-V-C-V)
- Yoda (C-V-C-V) and Dagobah (C-V-C-V-C-V-C)
- We mix up the pattern itself with Chewbacca (C-C-V-C-C-V-C-C-V) and Switzerland (C-C-V-C-C-V-C-C-V-C-C), but nonetheless they still match each other.
Gold star goes to Quadsevens who, in his efforts to solve the puzzle, was responsible for almost 70% of wookieepedia's traffic yesterday.
Hope you enjoyed. Next Off-Day Puzzle: June 9.
