Aviva was planning to take a trip around the world. She liked names that were similar to hers, so she made a list of places she would like to visit.

However, one of these places doesn't belong. Which one is it?

Arrawarra, Australia
Caraparac, Peru
Daba Qabad, Somalia
Krape Park, United States
Nagubugan, Philippines
Oktahatko, Florida
Ilokano, Polynesia



Answer

Ilokano, Polynesia. The rest of the places are palindromes, like her name.

Very easy, but really clever. It must have taken some real research to come up with all of those places. Well done ! Thanks.

It's common to identify cities with their countries in less populated countries and cities and states/provinces in places like the US, Canada, and China. Also, Polynesia isn't a country either.

WOW

I got the same answer because all of the other ones have at least 2 a's in the city...like her name

Nice one! However Polynesia isn't a country and Ilokano is in the Phillipines!

Poorly constructed puzzle. There are two reasonable alternative answers. First, "Krape Park," because it is the only location that doesn't consist of 4 syllables. Second, "Oktahatko," because it is the only location specified to be in a state rather than in a country. But I'm just irritated because I totally missed the palindrome connection.

And that's what I get for not reading the puzzle carefully.

I liked that one - clever! It was easy for me - and enjoyable! Thanks! Hello to KiPA!

I won't say this is another repeat, because wordmama gets mighty upset at me for saying that. So I will say this is another do over.

Good one!

You made me LOL, doehead! Thanks for the acknowledgment, regardless of the spirit in which it was meant! But that's right; I'd not seen it before.

As for a "regular" comment, I got the right answer but missed the palindrome aspect, only noticing that first and last letters were the same; do I get 1/2 a point??
