Why doesn't Mali work in place of Lima? Why doesn't Laos work in place of Also?

Well in the end I decided that you have to find the "unique" solution. After all if you see that your answers doesn't work you know you have to find an anagram of it. Also, in one of these cases, Laos wouldn't work because it's after Indium in alphabetical order so having the type-in work sometimes but not always would probably create confusion Thanks for your comment

There is no "unique" solution. You're excluding answers that completely follow the directions (including alphabetization) because they weren't the same answers you thought of. If you're going to make us read your mind, add that as one of the instructions!

They're not the answers I thought of, it's an extraction. Anyway tell me how you would have done it and I'll see if I can find a way of criticizing it
