    clever attempt. this choice came to me also, but i cudn’t find it too convincing. the meaning of the choice (‘eye’ here) was not implied to undergo change from how it is written (eye) to how it sounds (i). further, going by literal consideration alone, an eye, though sounding ‘i’, contains 3 letters. hence, doesn’t satisfy one condition. secondly, ‘i’ can also be spelled as ‘aai’, based on sound consideration. in that case none of the question conditions are satisfied.

    overall, a good attempt, though not convincing. any take on that!
