You'll just end up confusing yourself if you try to work this out in your head. Use the Memo Function to carefully draw out the letters and see what you can find.

US Version

Looking at the word as it's shown in the puzzle, it seems there are three incorrect letters.

However, only one letter is incorrect. Try looking at it from a different angle.

UK Version

Just looking at the word normally, it looks as if there are three incorrect letters. However, there really is only one.

Try looking at it in a different way.

US Version

For starters, try reversing the text as if looking at its reflection in a mirror. Use the Memo function to help visualize how this would look.

Now you're just one step from figuring out how the word is supposed to look and which letter is incorrect.

UK Version

First, try reversing the text as though you were looking at it through a mirror. It might be helpful to use the Memo Function rather than just trying to visualise this.

Now you're just one step from working out how the word is supposed to look and which letter is incorrect.

US Version

Did you figure out what the word would look like reflected in a mirror? From there, shift your perspective 180 degrees or so...

UK Version

Did you make a note of what the word looks like in a mirror? Next, you should try shifting your perspective 180 degrees or so...

Correct!

The "L" is wrong.

The word have been carved onto a giant stamp, so it needs to look correct when stamped onto something.

If you were to stamp it as shown in the puzzle, you'd see a big mistake!
