Matched PairsThese 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.
Each word in Group A can be paired with a unique word in Group B. What are the pairings? Why?
apropos, doughy, gingham, mica, rebuff, scarab, squall, ukulele
aloft, amateur, bituminous, enables, melody, phantasm, steroid, summary
