Dr. Rational's Puzzles

Dr. Rational has very definite preferences-- however, his preferences are based on the letters in the underlying words, not the things the words describe. For each of the puzzles you are given three examples which illustrate one of the Rules for Dr. Rational's Preferences. Your challenge is to determine the pattern and decide which of two things Dr. Rational prefers.

Example:

o Dr. Rational likes green but not blue

o Dr. Rational likes wheels but not tires.

o Dr. Rational likes freezers but not refrigerators.

Question: Does Dr. Rational like Rivers or Creeks?

Answer: Dr. Rational likes Creeks because Creeks has a double vowel.

If you drop the first letter of each of the words he likes, it is still a word.

One Correct for ale1552...... Dr. Rational likes Seven because if the first letter of "Seven"
is removed it still makes a word: even, hoes and hale (hearty well met). #2 in an hour.

kiki46, Dr. Rational would probably say, "That kiki guy is a logical and creative but in my book a bit irrational." lol
