They all begin same 2 letters so you need to look at 3rd letter.

In alphabetical order they would be
racket
raffle
raisin
rascal
rattle

reverse alphabetical order

rattle
rascal etc.

For quickness you don’t need to list them all and reverse just look for the one where 3rd letter is nearest end of alphabet, then find one which is nearest to that

Just a thought - were you reversing the order of the letters in each word?
