A la Pandora: The words in each set have a connection, something that
could apply to all three of them in some way. For example: leg, sound
barrier, bread = things you can break.

-1. hinge, knee, floorboard
-2. rope, snake, hose
-3. wedding, nose, phone
-4. memory, friend, opportunity
-5. prisoner, trap, leak
-6. fire, candle, cigarette (3 answers, 2 given: light, extinguish. Hint for 3: it has 3 degrees.)
-7. person, beets, herring
-8. bone, clock, table
-9. salad, doll, wound
-10. eyes, relationship, pasta

Have fun! wave
