Each of the sets of words below contain a word that should be in the other set. Which words and why?

SET 1: pin, car, hear, sea, eat
SET 2: star, lame, ring, rake


"eat" belongs in the second set, and "star" belongs in the first set.

If you add a letter "T" to the end of each word belonging in the first set, you get a word with a different meaning. Similarly, if you add a "B" to the beginning of each word belonging in the second set, you also get a different word.
