Connections Answer for November 20
Still can’t solve the puzzle after all the help above? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- RELIGIOUS FIGURES – Cardinal, Lama, Monk, Pastor
- PRIMATES – Baboon, Bonobo, Gibbon, Gorilla
- CHUTNEY VARIETIES – Mango, Mint, Tamarind, Tomato
- IMITATE – Ape, Mime, Mirror, Parrot
Solving today’s Connections was actually relatively easy, as I could easily connect most of the words together. However, I took a step back and started with the simplest one. Once I connected all the primates together, I nailed down the Green category. The Blue category came naturally since, as an Indian, I love all of these chutneys except Mango.
I then actually solved the Purple category next, as mime and parrot were dead giveaways. Even though it was fairly obvious by now, I had already made the Yellow connection in my head. So I paired those words together and finally got my NYT Connections answer for November 20.
