Odd Two Out Too

Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.

 

Puzzle ID:#15293
Fun:**** (3.29)
Difficulty:** (1.65)
Category:Trivia
Submitted By:just_moi*****
Corrected By:4demo

 

 

 



In this teaser, you have to find the odd ones out in the groups of words. BUT WAIT! There's a catch. Each group of words has TWO words which do not belong. Can you find them both?

EXAMPLE:

Lily - Jane - Tulip - Rose

Jane does not belong as it's the only one which is not a flower.

Tulip also does not belong because it's the only one which is not a girl's name.

You're on your own for the rest!

1. Dodge - Ford - Lincoln - Hoover

2. King - Earl - Knight - Bishop

3. Yellow - Green - Dead - Black




What Next?

Hey moi, you wouldn't mind if I could make 3 new ones (the odd 2 out ones) and kind of steal this idea? Just wondering.

Nov 15, 2003

in the second one you could elimenate earl, it not being a chess peice and all, gthen take out bishop because it doesn't start with a 'k'

Good one! The color ones with 'dead' in it stumped me, I never knew there was a yellow sea either!

fun teaser - thought the 3rd one was dead not a color, black not on a stop light...

Wow Mog i feel so honored 7cat sorry for the late response but SURE GO AHEAD! (i borrowed the idea off a magazine too )
freakachica714
Dec 03, 2003

hey this was a stellar puzzle but the last one with the colors you could take our dead because its not a color and black because it doesn't have double letters, green 2 e's, dead 2 d's, and yellow 2 l's. Just a thought!!!
just_moi**
Dec 03, 2003

hadnt noticed that freakachica! nice going
zowerskii
Dec 03, 2003

technically, black is not a color. If you want to repeat the riddle then you could try using the Red Sea rather than the Black Sea. Other than that, i thought it was really clever.

wicked teaser but one thing, i know a girl whose name is tulip, but i'd like to see more teasers from you!

Good teaser, I got part of it. And I was thinking the same thing as molla music.
YouKnow
Dec 30, 2003

I did not know you had to use the one that was obviously wrong when determining the next wrong one. If I would have known this, I could have gotten them all right.

actually youknow u didnt have to do that (u did it the right way!)

if i'm not wrong, you took if from the magazine "reader's digest". Right???
just_moi**
Mar 03, 2004

ur right AhSeng! i took the idea from readers digest (but i made up the pairs of words)... in the other one though (Odd Two Out) the pairs are from readers digest

I believe that there is a dead sea and it was given the name due to the seve salt content and every or any fish/animal that lived in it died, hence the name Dead sea. But regardless it was a very cool teaser, keep 'em comin'

I liked it except the last one. I got Dead, but I thought you could say Black since it is the only one spelled without an E
AralditeAus*
Dec 01, 2004

Good teaser. I missed the third one because I thought black is not really a color but the lack of color. I shouldn't have gotten so technical about it.

Dec 02, 2004

Many different answers. Number 3 was open. Black could be out because it doesn't have double letters, green could be out because it's not on a bee. Yellow could be out because it has 6 letters and black and green have 5. Dead is definitely out.

Apr 27, 2005

I liked that one a lot. I got the example before I scrolled down and saw the answer...Then I got the others except the black one. I thought black is not a color either. But I didn't think it would be that easy. GREAT JOB!!!

steveingreenwoo
Dec 01, 2005

Pretty cool teaser. I thought Yellow was the second answer on the third one, because it's not in the name of a band. Green Day, Grateful Dead. and Black Sabbath.
shawneeo*us*
Dec 01, 2005

Gosh, I feel like Scrooge bcoz I didn't like it like CRAZY!!! Sorry, but I just found it awkward, that's why... And because the black and dead one, The is a Dead Sea, The Dead Sea Scrolls? Haven't any of you, cept the one above, heard of them? But, not bad, just not what Im used to. Maybe if there were more it would have been more fun, like six or nine. Thanks!

Wow!! Great teaser! After doing a bit of thinking, I finally got all three right, and I just LOVE these early morning "mental excercises!" Keep up the good work, Moi!!

Dec 01, 2005

Great teaser! I got all but the second part of the last one. I knew that it was based on sea names but I wasn't familiar with the yellow sea so I didn't know if it was yellow or green that didn't belong

Good one!!! I did get them all. But, after reading the other comments, I realize that there could have been other "right?" answers. So many different ways of matching and discarding!! Makes the comments really interesting!!

Dec 01, 2005

That was really good! Thanks!
kman613**
Dec 01, 2005

good one. i got them all right, but one of them for a different reason. I said earl doesn't belong because its not a chess piece, and bishop because it doesn't begin with a "K". Good one - I liked the twist of having to look twice.

Dec 01, 2005

Great teaser...And for the example, I think "Tulip" can be a girl's name--I read a book once called "Hope Was Here" and Hope's real name was Tulip. (and if i were her i would change my name too!) But it was great! Good job

stm8r1us*
Dec 01, 2005

Since when is "DEAD" a color on a bee and a color on a rainbow? Some earlier commenters didn't get the concept that there are two different sets of three that have something in common. For the last one, I came up with Yellow as the answer since the other three are included in the names of musical groups: Black Sabbath, The Grateful Dead, and Green Day.

By the way, I thought it was a good teaser.

In the example after you eliminate Jane, of the three left Lily and Tulip are grown from bulbs and Rose is not
srichardson1066**
Dec 01, 2005

This was a very good puzzle and a fun one. However, the problem with things like these is that there are often more than one answer that would work and could potentially be correct. For instance, I thought that last one had to do with band names (Green Day, Black Sabbath, and the Grateful Dead). Anyway, it was fun and I liked it.
Graceiswayneat*
Dec 01, 2005

Yeah, Good Teaser, I figured it out in like 10.03 seconds. It was SOOOOO EASY.


No, just kidding, it was challenging especially the sea one. I hearted it!

BraingleMaster2*

I thought for the last one that Black didn't belong because it is not some part of a famous band. Yellowcard, Green Day, Grateful Dead.

don_antoniniph*
Dec 02, 2005



easy!ok lang cya
nikitafullmoonAca*
Dec 02, 2005

I like this teaser, too.

I think there are certainly other answers. For example, dodge, ford and hoover are all verbs (hoover is the British term for vacuuming--Presidents of the US...really, now!), yellow is the only two-syllable word in that set.

BTW, green is not a primary colour. It's made up of blue and yellow.

Don't forget about us other countries doing your riddles!

Keep 'em coming!
okie12342004
Dec 02, 2005

Great! Only got one right but really enjoyed racking my brain.
mogur*
Dec 02, 2005

Very good points, Nikita. However, blue is made from magenta and yellow, and yellow is made from red and green. So, the physical reality is that there aren't any so called primary colors (colours, in your country). All additive colors can be made from red, green, and blue (the monitor that you are looking uses RGB phosphors). All subtractive colors can be made from cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (printers and typesetters use the CMYK system).

Black does not belong because, it too, is the abscense of any color. But the teaser was very well contrived. I liked it.
gailpoolner
Dec 01, 2006

Jane does not belong because it is not a flower.

Rose does not belong because Lily and Tulip are grown from bulbs, a rose is not.
bradon182001*us*
Dec 01, 2006

I was thinking along the same lines as Coachpisco. Guess there is always more than one answer. Good teaser. It sure made me think about the answers.

This was a fun one. Like so many that commented I had a different answer for the second part of #3.

And for those who may have seen it before remember there are new people joining all the time (like me!) so while this may be recycled to you, it's unfamiliar to us!

My problem with the last one: once you eliminate Dead for not being a color, it's hard to think of Seas (even tho' I know that Yellow and Black are Seas) b/c Dead was a Sea but already eliminated!!

All I'd been able to come up with was yellow for # of letter, and that is really lame--I knew it had to be meaning, not appearance.

(sorry, # of letters)

WOW! YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL HOW INTERESTING OR GOOD A TEASER IS BY THE NUMBER OF COMMENTS. APPARENTLY,THIS ONE WAS A REAL WINNER!

I loved this teaser, and I loved the one it was based on. I also got them all, but the real reason I liked it was just the fun of finding two groups of three from the four.

That said, it seemed a lot of people were confused about the instructions for the teaser. Is it possible to modify the directions to say something like: "Find two groups of three words from each set of four"? Plus, for a hint, I think it would be a good idea to say that the relationships have nothing to do with the letters or syllables of the words, but only their meanings.

Maybe I'll come up with a teaser along these lines .... they seem like fun to make too! Good job on this one!

Oh yeah, and maybe to avoid the whole "Is Black a colour?" question, perhaps it's best to just say that "Dead" is not found in a box of crayons.

Don't like it. I found different answers. Bishop I got, but I said because it was 2 syllables. I said Dead and Black. Dead is obvious, but I said black because Yellow and Green, because they have 2 letters that are the same together (ll and ee). I am sick.

I got everything except for the "sea" part to #3. Great teaser - really fun and requires a little thinking and knowledge!

Excellent work! I loved the twist in making two of them the odd ones out, for different reasons. I can tell this took some work.

the last one black doesn't belong b/c it isn't a primary color of light!

Very good one... I got them all, but the last one took some thought (the others jumped out at me).

And for those of you complaining that "black" is not a color, it is certainly a color in many definitions of the word (and not a color in others, such as when referring to prismatic light). Perhaps you would prefer "colors of a crayon" to pure "color". Either way, the answer works and this was a very clever puzzle. Well done!

Good one - worth a repeat! I solved it a few months ago but enjoyed it again; that must be a sign of a successful teaser.

or.....hoover does not not because its not a car and dodge does not belong because its not made by ford. and ....earl does not belong because its not a chess piece and bishop does not belong because it doesnt start with the letter k .

Dec 01, 2009

kaaozz - your solutions don't work because hoover is not made by ford and earl doesn't start with 'k'. You have to put the words back in and then select the next odd one out.

So where is the Green Sea? That one threw me but I still like the teaser! Good job!
MrsKAus*
Dec 01, 2009

There is no Green Sea (that's the odd one out). The seas are Yellow (in China), Black Sea, and Dead Sea (also known as the Salt Sea).

I got #3 wrong because I was thinking about band names, too. However, yellow is the only one with two syllables making it a possible answer.

Good quiz---now I'll have to look up the Yellow Sea.

The only one I missed was the Sea. Got all the rest. Very good teaser, I liked it a lot.

Excellent job, but Tulip is also a girl's name as the above poster said.

I got them all except part of 2 and part of 3.

Great teaser. Black is a colour just as zero is a number, in my opinion. However, knights are commoners.

Got #1 and 2.
BTW if your post has to do with teasers being reused, send it to the administrator of this site. I don't thnk he/she reads these comments.

Sorry, JQPublic, though your spelling of the word "colour" suggests that you are British and might be expected to know something about social stratification in Great Britain, in fact knights were and are considered to be members of the nobility, although not very exalted ones. One is in fact ennobled by being knighted, and thereby being granted the right to be called "Sir."

I enjoyed this teaser. I got them all except the second part of number 3. Missed the fact they were all seas.
I spell it colour too, and know nothing about ranks or nobility; nor am I British.

My teaser; OLD-BLACK-WORNOUT-NEW. Black is eliminated because it is a color. New is eliminated because we never see these types of teasers.

You rock, cutebug. Up to your old tricks, I see! As usual, the comments are as good as the puzzle itself!

Nice idea but still needs a lot of tweaking to fix errors.

Black is not a colour. (Red alternate was given above)

Tulip is indeed a girl's name sometimes. ( ...use Carnation or something)

Bishop is also rank. ( ...just say non-secular instead)

Hoover just misses being a Chinese car brand by an extra letter o, Hover is made for the EU market in China. (No chuckles about suction please.)

Lincoln the company is the only one of those four ( Dodge brothers, Henry Ford and W. Hoover) not named after its original owner or founder Mr. Henry M. Leland but named after the founder's favourite president. So not an error, just an alternate answer.

I got most of them, but on the third I guessed dead and yellow, because yellow is the only one with two syllables...
