Brain Game: Bra, Rain, and In


Thanks for taking a crack at the Brain Game. Today, we ask you for a simple five-letter word. What could be easier than that? Good luck!

Several words contain shorter words "hidden" in the consecutive letters inside them. In the word RANTS, for instance, you can find RAN, AN, ANT, and ANTS. With this in mind:

What five-letter word contains four different personal pronouns hidden within in its consecutive letters?

Here is my SOLUTION.


USHER, which contains US, SHE, HE, and HER.

Did you come up with a different (but correct) answer? Or one that's similarly interesting in some way? Please post it in the comments!
