It's All Foreign to Me...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.
Which word from group A should belong in group B?
HintLatin and Greek...
AnswerIntrovert should belong in group B. The words in group A are derived from Latin stems:
Extravagant = Extra (beyond)
Hierarchy = Archy (government)
Rebel = Bell (war)
Captive = Cap (take)
Whereas introvert (intro, meaning within) is derived from a Greek stem. Group B:
Anthropology = Logy (science)
Micron = Micro (small)
Pentathlon = Penta (five)
Pseudopod = Pseudo (false)
Autograph = Auto (self)
All of the stems in group B are Greek.
