A Weak Brainteaser

These 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.

Good teaser. You fooled me. I was looking for an answer in Shakespear or something like that.

I was looking for words hidden in every word e.g. vermon in Vermont, statue in Statuesque (if you call that "hidden,") dish in swedish, art in Arthur's, and under and stood in Misunderstood. Your teaser is that much more "invinsible" because words cannot be found in Africa and Sensation. Good teaser!

Really good teaser. And, the clue didn't give it away to me. I still didn't figure it out. Clever, well thought out. Thanks for posting.

I would have been able to figure it out in another 2 minutes; I thought it had something to do with the days. Why didn't I look inside the words???
Good one!

Although this was another repeat, it was still hard for most people. But the only and original DOEHEAD conquered it again. A to Mi & Ct.

I thought it was so simple, until I read the answer I had guessed that they all had to do with 'states', not just governed entities, but various conditions, and assumed this was a short list. (a country can be considered a state, being still, belonging to someone, etc.) Guess my mental state is a bit weak today!

That wasn't a teaser it was more of an assault.

Best I could come up with was that they were all English words. But I knew my answer was weak.

Kudos to the magnificent doehead. I didn't get it this time, but it was still good.

The title gave it away without the clue, but still took a few guesses. Nice one
