No, that's not what they have (or what I got1) but yes, that's a valid answer. ObMensaRules.

1I started by seeing what words AIS could make, since that's the fewest combinations. I came up with D, X and P being candidates, assuming that APIS is a word (means BEE in Latin?). Didn't even notice R.

APIS is very obviously a word as in both the Win32 and Gtk+ APIS suck donkey dick.

If your letter is R, then ERTA becomes TREAR not TREAT.
