Who are We?These 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.
There are two groups of names: Group A and Group B. Some of the names in both groups have been jumbled about and placed into the wrong group.
You have two tasks. Firstly, you are to place the names of these people into their correct group. Secondly, but less importantly, you are to give each group its correct title.
