Q: Name a famous author whose last name starts with the letter C. Cross out four letters in it. The remaining letters, in order, will name another famous author also starting with C. Who are these two writers?I'm not sure if I have the intended answer but I have a pair of authors that will work... it helps if you have a list of authors starting with C
Edit: It's after the deadline, so I'm going to reveal what I think is the intended answer.
A: Miguel de CERVANTES (famous for "Don Quixote")
(cross out e,v,t,s)
Stephen CRANE (famous for "Red Badge of Courage")
