There are 40 clues here. What else should we do, except solve them? Clues are alphabetical by answer.
The mechanic is that these answers can be split into ten categories. Each category has three real words and one "impostor", which is one letter off of a real word satisfying that category. For instance, the words LEAD, MERCURY, and TIN are all elements. ARSENIO is one letter off of satisfying the category (ARSENIC). Categories are listed below, in (rough) order of difficulty:
|Category||Real words||Impostor||Wrong letter||Right letter||Real word|
|Elements||LEAD, MERCURY, TIN||ARSENIO||O||C||ARSENIC|
|Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters||LINK, RICHTER, SONIC||UKE||U||I||IKE|

|Portions of a whole||PART, QUARTER, SLICE||HALL||L||F||HALF|

The real words have first letters from A to J. Order them as such:
|Real word||Wrong letter||Right letter|
