Default A Riddle I Invented

The awful Sphinx has decided to grant you freedom and not eat you if you solve his riddle.

Sphinx: What five words make up the word carbon?



You lose the game if you answer wrong.

My guess is going to be "Carbon Arsenic Boron Oxygen Nitrogen" but I might be a little off.

Thumbs up

Spacemaniac was close, but I think it's "Carbon Argon Boron Oxygen Nitrogen."
Argon's element symbol is Ar, rather than As for arsenic.

Yes, trivially.

Ah, HSB is right. Was operating off memory there.

That is the answer! You successfully solved the riddle. Anyone else who attempted was eaten by the Sphinx. You have landed yourself a position as a famous riddle solver.
