Which word doesn't belong?

POLL
COMB
TERM
SET
GEM
MAR



Answer

SET

All of the other words form a new word when -INATION is added to the end.

POLLINATION (the act of pollinating)
COMBINATION (a sequence or order)
TERMINATION (the act of ending or finishing)
GEMINATION (the elongated pronunciation of a consonant)
MARINATION (the act of marinating)

However, SETINATION is not a word.
