CorrigendaThese 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 abbreviation from Group A should be in Group B?
HintThe title, "corrigenda", means "things needing to be corrected" in what language?
All the words from GROUP B are all Latin abbreviations used commonly in the English language, whereas GROUP A, with the exception of "etc." are all abbreviations from the English language.
a = ante (before)
A.D. = Anno Domini (in the year of the lord, however commonly incorrectly translated as "after death")
c = circa (about)
e.g. = exempli gratia (for example)
i.e. = id est (that is)
etc. = et cetera (and the rest)
