SOME "PART-OF-WORD" RIDDLES

As I've said before, the best riddles are ones that speak about a specific thing (or some clever ones are even about a single letter), NOT ones that change gears from line to line talking about different meanings or uses of a word or part of a word. That said, I have decided to include a few part-of-word riddles as examples, that I still found entertaining:

With Mist

With mist I'm a wrong,
That says you need some drilling;
With tooth a problem,
A hole in need of filling.

What am I?

-- Critical Thinking Co. (p. 10)

None Available None Available Ache (mistAKE; toothACHE) Add the "AKE" sound to "mist" or to "tooth"

 

I Am Power

With trick I am power,
On which we do depend;
Alone I am to choose,
Who will win in the end.

What am I?

-- Critical Thinking Co. (p. 20)

None Available None Available Elect: (ELECTric; ELECT) No explanation is necessary

 

With T

With t I'm the crime,
Of country betrayed;
Alone I'm the grounds,
In argument made.

What am I?

-- Critical Thinking Co. (p. 10)

None Available None Available Reason (tREASON; REASON) No explanation is necessary

 

Alone

Alone I am words
Entering your mind;
With f I am slaves,
Leaving chains behind.

What am I?

-- Critical Thinking Co. (p. 20)

None Available None Available Read (READ; fREED) No explanation is necessary
