Family is GrandThese brain teasers rely on your ability to recognize groups of common attributes. For each of these puzzles you'll need to figure out why the words or letters are grouped as they are. Sometimes you will be asked to pick the odd-one-out or to place a new word into the correct group.
All of the following nouns have a mutual characteristic. It's not the fact that they all start with the "grand" prefix and, it has nothing to do with spelling or pronunciation. Also, it's not the fact that they all represent people and family members.
Can you tell me what this characteristic is?
HintThat is a very large in size family.
AnswerYou can attach the word "great" in front of every noun on the list and form another noun.
4. Great granddaughter
Another solution would be to remove the "grand" prefix and form new nouns.
The hint eliminates the second possibility, "Very large in size" being part of the definition of the word "great".
