As a detective trying to decipher the crossword clue ‘Fam figure‘, I went through a series of thought processes to arrive at the answer ‘SIB‘. Firstly, I noticed the word ‘fam‘ which is an abbreviation for family. This led me to think about the different family members that could fit the bill. I then looked at the word ‘figure‘, which suggested a single letter or a short word. After considering all possible family members, siblings stood out as the best option to fit the description. Looking at the length of the answer space, three letters, and the fact that it had to be a singular word, I settled on ‘SIB‘ which is a shortened form of sibling. Further confirming my answer was the fact that family members such as mother or father would have longer spellings, and other family words like relative, cousin, or aunt would also not fit the puzzle. Thus, my thought process led me to solve the mystery and arrive at the answer ‘SIB‘.
