Jan and FriendsThese 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.
Jan and I were having coffee with our friends, when suddenly she said, "Hey guys, there's something remarkable about most of our names."
We looked around blankly at one another. We went through our names: Bru', Em, Gus, Jan, Marc, and Sam. What could she mean?
Then it hit me! Five of the names had something in common. Mine was the odd one out!
What is my name? What did the other names have in common?
HintOne of our other friends, May, fits in the group, too. When she arrived with her friend Al, he and I went to sit at another table!
AnswerI am Sam.
The other names are found as continuous groups of letters "hidden" in the months of the year. Sam (and Al) are not.
JANuary, feBRUary, MARCh, auGUSt, septEMber...and MAY
