  • I have problems with this wording—”However, the letters can be moved around in any order.” That is not clear. I see what you mean now that I know the answer, but it actually KEPT me from thinking correctly. I would put it this way: “Except for one letter that is unique to each word, the country and the capital are anagrams.”

    I think the riddle is phrased sufficiently. I understood what it was saying, but more importantly many riddles are phrased purposefully to confuse a would be solver. To be clear: riddles are not suppose to be clear. That’s what makes them riddles.
