In each of the above clues, words coloured in red are “Questions” i.e. they are words/phrase for which you have to give a synonym as Answer. Words in italic are anagrammed to create a new word which is the synonym i.e. the Answer.
For example, in CB 11, answer is ANDES because it is a synonym of the word “mountain range” and is derived by anagramming letters of the word “Danes”.
Anagram is a word formed by rearranging letters of another word.
