BB02 GROUPIE CHALLENGE #03

These 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.

You have two tasks to perform in order to solve this teaser:

01. Determine what the following four pairs of words have in common.

02. Prove your assumption by listing (in the comments) two additional DIFFERENT pairs of words using the same commonality.

aim please
come mama
fair middling
need know


Answer

Answer: Adding the word "to" in-between each pair of words gives us an idiomatic or colloquial expression.

"aim to please"
"come to mama"
"fair to middling"
"need to know"

An example of ones you might come up with; "keep to yourself", "made to order".
