DictionThese 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.
These words share a common trait:
bound, custom, diction, gloss, second, vision
Which of the following words also belongs in that group?
actual, comment, portion, statue
HintThe words illusion and rudiment also fit the group.
AnswerARY can be added to the end of each word in the first group to create a new word:
boundary, customary, dictionary, glossary, secondary, visionary
So the correct choice is COMMENT, which becomes commentary when ARY is appended.
Actuary and statuary are real words, but to make them you have to drop letters from actual and statue before appending ARY.
