Palindromic words are a special group of words that are splelt the same both backwards and forwards (eg dad). To make life a little more difficult, I have provided clues that are a little cryptic. Can you identify the 5 palindromic words?
1. Runs a naughty establishment.
2. Flies beneath it to avoid detection.
3. When I was younger there were only two - now I'm not sure.
4. Placed above a mere mortal.
5. Just a fraction I note.

| The answers I was after were:
Flin didn't give me deified but instead suggest mum or dad noting they are often regarded as more than mere mortals. I couldn't argue with that!
Bear gains a bonus point for his answer to number 4. Not only did he correctly give deified, he went on to list ARDRA (a Hindu goddess) and IGIGI (a Sumerian god).
