Connections hint for today (June 10th, 2024)

Without revealing the exact answers, here are some nudges to get you closer to solving today’s puzzle:

  • Yellow group: This category focuses on the centre or core of something.
  • Green group: Consider things that are intricate or have many interwoven parts. Words that suggest complexity or difficulty to understand.
  • Blue group: Imagine symbols you’d use to break down information in a clear and organised way, such as separating items in a list or pointing something out.
  • Purple group: This category is a bit of a trickster. Look for a connection related to the word ‘cross’ that might seem unexpected at first. It could be a literal meaning, a figurative one, or even a combination of both.
