What word has statistically been proven to be the hardest word to guess in Hangman?

Answer:

JAZZ

In case you don’t remember, Hangman is a game where a player chooses a word and the other players try to guess it by asking which letters it contains. Mathematician Jon McLoone created a computer program to simulate nearly 15 million games of Hangman using 90,000 words in the dictionary. His computer simulation helped him uncover that "jazz" is the hardest word to guess in the game. The reason is simple: shorter words give the guesser fewer chances to get the correct letter, and “jazz” is framed by two uncommon letters: J and Z.
