Fast Strike...

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.

What do the following words have in common?

FAST
STRIKE
BILL
QUANTUM
SANCTION



Answer

Each of these words has definitions that contradict one other.

Fast is quick moving, but can also mean stock still, as in stuck fast.
Strike means to hit, but in baseball it means to miss the ball.
A bill is a piece of paper money, or a demand for money.
Quantum (leap) is a large advance technologically, yet the smallest change possible in physics.
If you sanction something you agree to it, but if you impose a sanction it means that you are preventing behavior that you don't agree with.

Other examples are custom, clip, miss, skin, trim. I'm sure you can think of others.
