Pleasing WordsThese 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.
Which of the following words is the odd one out?
pleasing, biplanes, replicas, captions, pralines, jackpots, displant
HintWords must be eight letters long and have a "p" to belong to this group.
Some other words in the group are: lifespan, plainest, and clasping.
AnswerThe odd one out is "replicas".
The other words are typed (normally) by using each of your eight fingers once. For "replicas", you would use the same finger to type "e" and "c", and you wouldn't use your right index finger at all.
