Common SentencesThese 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.
The four sentences in Group A share a special feature. If you correctly identify that common feature, you will find that one of the sentences in Group B also has that same feature. What is the feature? What sentence in Group B can be added to Group A?

The Dutch girl made a sandwich of edam cheese.
The government keeps a file of every thing that you do in your life.
The hunter slept on a bed of rabbit pelts.
A quart of condensed milk has a volume of one pint.
It takes a bun to make a hamburger.
The bear climbed a ladder to get in the tree.
The desert was a rainbow of colors.
The parrot bit the pirate on the nose.
The queen hornet sat on a throne of honey.
AnswerEach of the sentences in Group A contain two words that are anagrams of each other (space & capes, made & edam, file & life, slept & pelts). The sixth sentence in Group B has that characteristic (hornet & throne).
