In each puzzle below, we've strung together a series of words taken from a specific category, removed one letter from each word, and then closed up the spaces. The letters we removed, in order, spell one other item in that category.

For example: E R C U R Y S T U R N E A T H V E N U is missing the M from MERCURY, the A from SATURN, the R from EARTH, and the S from VENUS, which spells MARS (another planet).

Can you figure out the original words and the extra item spelled by the missing letters?

1. [imath]\;[/imath] P U P L E B L U I N I G O

2. [imath]\;[/imath] Y N P O N D D O L L A P E S

3. [imath]\;[/imath] C O L Y O M A N O S W S S D A M

4. [imath]\;[/imath] W A M M Y C U R S J I N
