Chacham's Journal: Puzzle: Shortest word using A-F? 10-letters from top row. 8

Journal by Chacham

Was just playing Trivial Pursuit with my mother and brother-in-law. I got a number of easy question such as (not quite the exact questions), "What is the name of the sequel to Alice in Wonderland?" or, "What country drinks the most beer?", or even, "What significant discovery was made in 1898?". I almost won, but my brother-in-law was one piece ahead of me, and then he had to leave. We'll probably have to play again sometime. Anyway, I noticed a nice question. "What is the shortest word one can make that uses all the letters A, B, C, D, E, and F?" Cute question, and after a while I finally got it. Worth the thought. Of course, that goes together with,"What ten-letter word can be made using the top row of letters on a typewriter?"
