## Quordle today (game #900) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #900, are…

• CHEER
• SQUIB
• CLEFT
• ODDLY

This is potentially a very difficult Quordle today. SQUIB is a monster of a word: not only does it have a Q in it, but that Q follows an S, which is not a common combination at the start, and the words ends with a B too. CHEER and ODDLY both have repeated letters, meanwhile, meaning you'll have needed a good strategy, good luck, or good brains to have solved it. I definitely had the first two and will leave you to judge whether I had the third!
