Well done. It's a lot better to persevere, isn't it! I'm often annoyed when I check the answers ... and know I'd have got an answer with just a little more effort!

GOOD FUN HERE, it took me a little while to get the first one, but then it moved along quickly.

Good one! I got them all but #3 took a bit of thinking. Thanks for posting!

What a clever idea! I got the pairs figured out, but gave up on which one doesn't belong. It was refreshing to have a different kind of teaser.

I thought it was LOFT and SOUND
because the answer was soft and lound and lound was misspelled loud. oh well

Now that was a good and fun teaser. Not too easy, yet not too hard. Thanks for that one!

Wasn't sure about this one until I got to #4. Figured the rest out from there. Nice teaser.

There's a much simpler answer, number 5 doesn't belong because the first vowel doesn't match.

I liked this one, too - thanks for posting!

@asupmdr: ...and no. 3 doesn't belong because the second word has five letters, and no. 1 doesn't belong because the first word has three letters.

Why would you be asked to determine the way the pairs are formed if it had nothing to do with which is the odd one out?

i thought this was a great teaser, although i did get it wrong, because i changed the wrong letter in 3, the words do seem to have other links. maybe next time you should give an obscure clue in the actual teaser as to what links them
