On most days, it will be easy enough to find the answer to Wordle, especially if you’re a longtime player. Many have found or developed their own strategies, like figuring out what are the best words to guess first, which can guarantee you get the answer right in six tries or less. But strategies don’t work the same way every day, and there are times when you may find yourself stuck with a couple of letters and no idea where to go next. If those letters are an “L” followed by an “O,” check out the list below.

To narrow down the list, there are a few things you can do. The first is to observe the position of the “LO”—if you know the letters are together in the word, you must also know exactly where. You can also pay attention to letters that came out gray or yellow in previous guesses because they may provide valuable information. Another thing you must keep in mind is that Wordle will never pick a plural form as the answer to a puzzle, so plurals should be avoided if you’re running low on guesses.

If you’re still unsure and don’t want to wait until Wordle resets at midnight local time, you can always look up the answer to today’s puzzle (which we update around 12am CT).
