Not knowing where the “A” is might be an opportunity to try out various letter combinations, from “ARSON” to “LATEN” or “CHAIN.” It depends on the information you already found on your own, like the letters that came out gray in previous guesses, and the place where any yellow letters were. But that is enough to start narrowing down the list to get to the exact word you need today. It is also important to avoid re-using letters and placements that you already know aren’t correct, so as to maximize the amount of information that each guess gives you.
