Crazy MailboxThese 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.
Greep Hooke was asked by a priest to determine which FOUR (4) words below should be in his IN-BOX and which FOUR (4) words should be in his OUT-BOX.
The priest said that the real challenge however was to do so in such a way that each word in the IN-BOX be paired with a word in the OUT-BOX.
SISTER SKIRT SHY SPRING
SANE SECT SAT SPED
Question : How should the words be grouped and paired?
HintThis may sound crazy but SANE should be in the OUT-BOX said the priest while putting on his cassock.
AnswerWords in the IN-BOX are listed first, and the related word found in the OUT-BOX is listed second:
Words are grouped based on which of IN or OUT could be added to form a new word.
Words are paired based on where IN or OUT could be added to the word.
Hint : While SANE could also be under IN-BOX to read INSANE, proper pairings would not be possible if that is done hence the hint. A SOUTANE is also called a CASSOCK. Crazy suggests INSANE.
