American Presidents 16These 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 president in Group B can be added to Group A? Why?
Group A: James Polk, William McKinley, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt
Group B: James Madison, William Harrison, James Buchanan, Rutherford Hayes, Grover Cleveland, Jimmy Carter
AnswerThe presidents in Group A presided over a declared war (James Polk for the Mexican War, William McKinley for the Spanish-American War, Woodrow Wilson for World War 1, and Franklin Roosevelt for World War 2). Therefore, James Madison, who presided over the War of 1812, can be added to Group A.
