Below are two groups of musical instruments. The instruments in Group A all have one major thing in common with each other. The same can be said for Group B.

Your task is to ascertain which instruments have been incorrectly placed in each group and replace them into their correct grouping.

Group A:

bassoon, oboe, saxhorn, bagpipes, ophicleide, dizi, saxophone, clarinet, and bili.

Group B:

flugelhorn, baritone horn, english horn, sousaphone, guanzi, mellophone, sackbut, trombone and serpent.


Group A are all woodwind instruments. The saxhorn and ophicleide do not belong since they belong in the brass family and should be in Group B.

Group B are all brass instruments. The english horn and the sackbut do not belong since they belong in the woodwind family and should be in Group A.
