## Quordle today (game #902) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #902, are…

• MUSKY

• AGATE

• EXPEL

• SLICK

I made a right mess of this one, and only escaped thanks to a last-gasp solve on the top-right quadrant. Admittedly, it's a tricky one – AGATE has a repeated A and is uncommon, EXPEL has a repeated E and an uncommon X. And unsurprisingly, it was those two that I struggled with. EXPEL was particularly galling; I played LEPER even though I knew it couldn't be correct, because I'd failed to spot that EXPEL was an option and couldn't see anything else.

That left me one more answer to find, where I had --A-E and a yellow T. --ATE made sense, and when I spotted ABATE, I played that. But what I should have done was to have considered that AGATE also fit. It wouldn't have made any difference, but at least I would have known what I was doing!
