Type Q - Form new word

With this type of question you are given two groups, each group consists of three words.
You are required to find two words, one from each group, which when joined
together form a new word. The word from group 1 always comes first.

Begin by looking at the first word from first group and match it in turn with the words from the second group. If there is no match look at the second word from the first group and match it in turn with the words from the second group. If there is still no match look at the third word from the first group and match it in turn with the words from the second group.

Lets look at an example:

(dream  bike  car)        (grass  room  pet)

Take the first word of group one - 'dream' and match it with 'grass', room' and 'pet'.

dreamgrass? x, dreamroom? x, dreampet? x. ...... No match.

Take the second word of group one - 'bike' and match it with 'grass', room' and 'pet'.

bikegrass? x, bikeroom? x, bikepet? x. ...... No match.

Take the third word of group one - 'car' and match it with 'grass', room' and 'pet'.

cargrass? x, carroom? x, carpet? . Yes ...... 'carpet' is a real word.

The answer is 'carpet'
