Unscramble and Sort 1These 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 object of this teaser is to unscramble each word in Group 1 and move one of the words to Group 2.
Group 1: NEHOPXI, URDTRBENDIH, OCNHCNOH, TMUNROAI, ZUKSAU
Group 2: Basilisk, Unicorn, Yale
WARNING: Only look at the hint if you are entirely stumped!
HintUnscrambled, NEHOPXI starts with a P, URDTRBENDIH with a T, OCNHCNOH with a C, TMUNROAI with an M, and ZUKSAU with an S.
AnswerGroup 1 (Unscrambled): PHOENIX, THUNDERBIRD, CHONCHON, MINOTAUR, SUZAKU
A "minotaur" is a mythical beast. The rest of Group One are all mythical birds. "TMUNROAI" should be unscrambled to "MINOTAUR" and moved to Group 2.
