Which One?

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 one! Keep 'em coming!!

Not to sound too pick-y... but what in the questions restrictions makes the following response less legitmite an answer?

Ice does not belong because, unlike the rest, it begins with a vowel.

Yea...I got the same thing as Errant.

How about tooth, it's the only one that isn't pluralized by adding an "s".
May 09, 2008

i came up with tooth because it was the only word that had repetitive letters in it
Feb 08, 2009

I removed ice because it was the only word you couldn't remove a letter and still have a word.
Feb 08, 2009

Too many possible answers.Should have elaborated more on the type of answer you were hunting.
Feb 08, 2009

Nice job. Guess I was just in a picky mood this morning as it came right to me. But may not be as easy for others.
Feb 08, 2009

Yay, got this one right away,ez pz thx

What is a Nit?
Feb 08, 2009

yqtbjkn, a nit is a very small thing. to nitpick is to be critical about minutia.
fun teaser

Not too difficult, but cute. I was trying to figure which ones could be either a verb or noun. When I came to nit...... the dawn came.
Feb 08, 2009

I liked this one as well. Took me a few minutes to figure out also, but then the light bulb went off. Thanks for posting.
Feb 08, 2009

technically nit pick is two words... I kind of feel the same way about handpick. but it is an interesting teaser. thanks for the brainpick er

The answer "ice" because it starts with a vowel is wrong because that puzzle would be lame.

The answer "tooth" because it has a double vowel is wrong because that puzzle would be lame.

The answer "ice" because there's no way to remove a letter and leave a word is not as lame as the foregoing. It arguably isn't lame at all. However it's not as good a teaser as the intended answer.
Feb 08, 2009

And you can change the first letter of all but "ice" to S and create a new word.
Feb 11, 2009

ok i dont care what anyone says, that was really hard in fact it was too hard. like others have said, there were to many different answers
