    The answer is language. It is the third word of "the English language". The question needs to be spoken, otherwise the quotation marks give away thetrick. This version apparently originated in 1996

    There are only two words that end in "gry". No more than that.
    Angry and Hungry.

    A few riddles in this format are circulating widely on the Internet:
    This question is one of them. It is incomplete, and cannot be answered, so your question fails.

    there are more than two words in the English language that end in "gry". Most of them just aren't as common as hungry or angry.....

    Uhh...it's testing your ability to read...you've failed. Asking the "gry" words is irrelevant. Notice how the English languageis in quotations.
