1. What word is it when you take away the whole, you still have some left over?

2. What is a word that has three letters, but if you add two, it becomes fewer?

3. What 7-letter word becomes longer when the third letter is removed?

4. There is only one ten-letter word in the English language which can be typed using only the top row of keys on a keyboard. What is it?

5. 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?
