Ten PhoneticsThese 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 two of the following words do not belong?
are carnation elaborate endearing
fir homeowner rob tan terrified woe
HintThe group contains pairs of words (a 3-letter word and a 9-letter word). One pair of words doesn't have the same property as the other pairs.
If you're still stuck, then look at the words in the title; they also belong to the group.
AnswerThese two words don't belong: "are" and "endearing".
The other 3-letter words in the group appear backwards in the middle of the 9-letter words.
