Correct a CountryThese 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.
The following country names have been placed in two groups based on one attribute.
Part 1 (easy): Determine what that attribute is.
Part 2 (tricky): Change one of the country names and move it to the other group.
HintDon't look at a map. This is about names.
AnswerPart 1: All these are English names of the countries. The names in Group A are the same in the local language, whereas the names in Group B are not the local names. (Germany is Deutschland, Ivory Coast is Cote d'Ivoire, Japan is Nippon, Albania is Shqiperia, and Montenegro is Crne Gore .)
Part 2: Officially the English name of Cote d'Ivoire is Cote d'Ivoire, so remove Ivory Coast from Group B and put Cote d'Ivoire in Group A.
