Contractions HereThese 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.
Only one contraction from Group B can be added to Group A. Which one is it, and why?
Group A: I'd, I'll, he'd, we'll, they're
Group B: I'm, he's, she'd, she'll, we've, you've
HintMaybe the title should be: Contractions Hear.
AnswerAll the words in Group A can sound like other words (that aren't contractions).
"I'd" can sound like "eyed".
"I'll" can sound like "aisle" or "all".
"He'd" can sound like "heed".
"We'll" can sound like "wheel" or "will"
"They're" can sound like "there".
"We've" can sound like "weave", and thus it can be added to Group A.
Can you think of any other contractions that could be in this group? Some obvious ones are:
"We'd" can sound like "weed".
"He'll" can sound like "heel" or "hill".
"You're" can sound like "your".
"It's" can sound like "its".
