Use the four clues to find a common link. List the answer to each clue and the link. Some answers may be homophones of the actual word for the group. In fact, one group contains three homophones.

Example: lifting device (crane), rapid (swift), flying toy (kite), glimmer (flicker)...bird types.

-1. flower or old spreadsheet program, avoid, wade, chase preceder?
-2. circular course around an axis, aught, the time period that your parents told you they weren't born, relief
-3. grubs(action), cradle(as in baby holder), butter or paper quantity, a large catered meal
