More ways to get Braingle...

Wizard or Magician

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.

 

Puzzle ID:#34746
Fun:*** (2.79)
Difficulty:*** (3.06)
Category:Group
Submitted By:MarcM1098Aca****

 

 

 



This is quite a group I've found;
Look who belongs, it will astound.

In this group, find BY and LO,
But see neither HIGH nor LOW.

This group is not very big,
But it has GRIT, GIRT and TRIG.

HOVELS is in, but move the "s",
this group SHOVEL does not possess.

It is sad but true, this thought:
VOLE belongs, but LOVE does not.

Now, which one belongs, tell me quick:
WIZARD, MAGICIAN, MEDIUM or MAGIC?


Hint

I think you will do better,
If you focus on each letter.

Look close and you will see,
Group members have a symmetry.

Great teaser - I got it by just looking at the words for a while. The word "BY" tipped me off.

I did not get the answer, but it was really fun trying to figure it out. They say working at something like this daily will keep your mind sharp. Guess I need some practice . Please keep sending these. They will train me to use that gray matter of mine.

Wow! very creative teaser. Totally stumped me.

I got it, I got it, I got it, I got it!!!!

I had to read the hint, and then, I don't know, I guess the word "symetry", plus, like someone else said, the "by", and it just popped into my head. That's a good one, pretty hard but not impossible. Thanks for the wonderful teaser!

This was a tough one...way out of my league. Even the hint didn't help. My kudos to Marc and the few who actually got the answer.

Still don't understand. What you mean by eqidistant letters?
MarcM1098Aca*
Feb 14, 2007

equidistant means the distance is equal (i.e. the letters are the same distance away from the middle of the alphabet)
