If the only clue you’ve received to help solve your Wordle puzzle is that it has the letter “A”, it can feel like you’re stuck in a pickle.

There are more than 200 five-letter words that have “A” as the only vowel in the word. And the worst part, it can be placed anywhere. Where do you even start? Thankfully, there are some tips and tricks for those who may be struggling with this relatively vague clue.

The first is to figure out where is the letter “A” placed. Certain letter placements will determine how many words you will need to think about when solving the puzzle.

Next, is to consider words ending with either “Y” or double “S” as they are common possible solutions.

Lastly, consider the possibility of another “A” in the solution as Wordle likes to throw in some curveballs like that.
