Which one of the following words does not belong with the other six?

Issue
Mishap
Parachute
Ocean
Semiconscious
Anxious
Mansion



Answer

Mishap is the misfit.

The other six words, and the three in the title, all contain the 'sh' sound - which is spelled in nine different ways!

Ironically, the word which does contain -sh- is not pronounced 'sh'!

'Schedule' would count as another spelling of the same sound, depending on which side of the Atlantic you studied!
