Word PairsThese 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.
Each word from Group A can be paired with a different word from Group B, creating ten pairs. The pairings are all created using the same reasoning. What are the pairings? What is the link?
Group A: come, dark, early, easy, in, left, slow, strikeout, tall, win
Group B: eat, find, heavy, living, open, run, safe, soft, stop, wrong
AnswerThe words in each pairing share a common antonym.
come GO stop
dark LIGHT heavy
early LATE living
easy HARD soft
in OUT safe (out & safe - baseball)
left RIGHT wrong
slow FAST eat
strikeout WALK run (strikeout & walk - baseball)
tall SHORT open (short & open - electrical circuit)
win LOSE find
