Guessed is the past participle of the verb “guess”, which means estimate or suppose (something) without sufficient information to be sure of being correct.

Guest is a noun that means a person who is invited to visit the home of or take part in a function organized by another; a person invited to participate in an official event; a person lodging at a hotel or boarding house; a customer at a restaurant; (entomology) a small invertebrate that lives unharmed within an ants’ nest.
