On-Air Challenge: Every answer is a compound word or familiar two-word phrase, in which the first word has a long O for its vowel sound and the second word has a long U. For example, given the clue “a traditional Christmas entrĂ©e,” the answer would be “goose.”

Last Week’s Challenge: Think of two five-letter words that are exact opposites, in which the first two letters of each word are the same as the first two letters of the other, only reversed. Hint: The fourth letter of each word is A. What two words are these?

Answer: Urban and rural

Winner: Phil Jacknis of Dix Hills, N.Y.

Next Week’s Challenge: From Mike Reese, a former writer and producer for The Simpsons: Take the two-word title of a TV series. The first word contains a famous actor’s first name in consecutive letters. The second word is a homophone for this actor’s last name. Name the series and the actor.
