link A piece of every answer, or link, will have some sort of common bond with the other links. Your goal is to identify this missing link that connects the answers together. For example, if the answers were "The Omega Man", "Catherine Zeta Jones", "alpha male", and "Delta Airlines" the missing link would be "letters of the Greek alphabet". As you can see, it is important to give the full answer being looked for. Last names, abbreviations, and partial answers aren't always enough.
