Connections Answer for November 5
Have you finally given up and are ready for the answer? The answer to today’s Connections puzzle is:
- UNCHANGING – Even, Level, Stable, Steady
- LONG, SHARP OBJECTS – Lance, Pin, Skewer, Spit
- MUSIC PUBLICATIONS – Billboard, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Spin
- WORDS WITH NUMERICAL PREFIXES– Uniform, Bicycle, Trilogy, Quadrant
I always knew being a man of culture would help me out. Even though music publications were supposed to be hard, it took me less than 10 seconds to guess all the words and get the blue category out of the way. The yellow category, too, was fairly basic and easy to guess from the start. I will be honest; the purple category did stump me for a few minutes because of Quadrant, but a colleague did point out that these just might be disguised numbers. Once I had that nailed in, the green category was right there for me to wrap up today’s Connections puzzle.
