There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?

So we know the last letter must be an a or an i

So then we have to possibilities so far

the A Theory and the I Theory

Right now I am working on the A Theory

Let the Numbers be Variables

A Theory

9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 A

2- COULD be H (ha) L (la) P (pa)

So 1=a
And 2= H/L/P

(Ha, La, Pa)

3- COULD be A (aha)

Given: It must be a vowel. (A E I O U)
THIS SEEMS RIGHT, I AM NOT SURE.

eha is not a word, it is an acronym.
iha is not a word, it is an acronym.
oha is not a word, it is an acronym.
uha is not a word, it is an acronym.

Decided: 2 DOESNT NOT equal H


Ugh This could take a while.

2. No, they did not buy anything except the ticket
3 & 4. No, they were watching the movie, they were not in it.
