ElementaryLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
The following elements have a mutual feature (it has nothing to do with their chemical proprieties, with the fact that they each contain the vowel "i" or with the fact that they all finish in a consonant). Also, only one of them has another interesting characteristic (it has nothing to do with spelling or pronunciation). What is the feature and the interesting characteristic?
1. Palladium (Pd)
2. Antinomy (Sb)
3. Actinium (Ac)
4. Rubidium (Rb)
5. Gallium (Ga)
6. Seaborgium (Sg)
AnswerThey all start with a three letter word.
PALladium, ANTimony, ACTinium, RUBidium, GALlium, SEAborgium.
The word with the interesting characteristic would have to be antinomy, which is not an element. Antinomy is an anagram for the element antimony (Sb).
