What's Left? 1 on page 11 - first word FASHION - clue 4 says to cross of all words with 3 consecutive vowels - A, I, O - should be crossed off but solution shows it as first word. Also no clue that crosses off GAIETY, MOOED or LIEU; they all have 3 vowels but are not consecutive.

In FASHION, the A-I-O sequence is interrupted by SH, so the three vowels are not consecutive. The three other words do have three consecutive vowels.

The example given is "Cross off all words that contain three consecutive vowels (A, E, I, O, or U), such as VIRTUOUS" - it is unclear that it is referencing I, O, U (consecutive to AEIOU) versus U, O, U which is random consecutive vowels. Could have been a clearer clue, by adding the word any - "Cross off all words that contain any three..."

"Consecutive" means adjacent. It doesn't mean "in the conventional order," although I see how it might be interpreted that way. If you also do Simon Says puzzles, you'll find "consecutive" used with the same meaning that it has in this What's Left?
