VERBAL REASONING week 6 Q3

Word Building

These questions show an example word having been made of the two words which are in brackets.  You must work out which letters were taken from the words in brackets, and apply the same rule to the second set of brackets to make a new word.

For example:
(file)    fine   (line)                  (then)        ?        (walk)
Answer:  talk

Question:

(called)               seal  (spends)                      (arenas)           ?        (stable)
