SovreignThese 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.
All except one of the following words have something in common. What is common and which one doesn't belong?
AnswerInnocuous is the word that does not belong and the reason is that it is the only word that is spelled correctly.

Very cool! I had to pull up my dictionary to solve that one.
An innocuous and fun little puzzle!
(First time I've ever used THAT word in a sentence!)

great one I loved it

I felt right about the right word but I was a bit fuzzy on the correct spellings of the other words .. I knew they didn't seem spelled right but .. maybe we'll get a spell checker in the comment box .. could cut and paste out of Word I guess (seems like cheating) .. One of my worst habits is prepair instead of prepare ..

Wow, that was good! I noticed that the title was spelled wrong(sovereign I think is how you spell it)but i didnt think anything about it. oh well
Posted by dewdrop on Jun 13, 2005|
Oooooo I'm so excited cause I got it!!!! yay!
Posted by Javian on Jun 27, 2005|
too easy, but still fun
Posted by Hermione500 on Jul 04, 2005|
LOL! I love this teaser! I fell for the double letter things as well. I have to admit, I like to be the spelling/grammar police and this just made me crack up laughing that I got it wrong. Thanks for the pick-me-up!
Posted by gmtfooh on Jul 04, 2005|
There is another possible answer. All of the words end in consonants except Inoculate, which ends in a vowel. Very simple answer, but still a possible answer.
Posted by Frogtvjr on Jul 04, 2005|
Very Well Done
Posted by daffy on Jul 04, 2005|
I just thought somebody didn't know how to spell......
Posted by orlyizhot on Jul 04, 2005|
I thought it was the answer because it was the only one without a E caus every other word has a E. So did anyone else but me love Orlando Bloom's acting skills cause orly is Orlando Bloom's nickname!!!

That was easy . . . but it was good.
Posted by jennysugars on Jul 04, 2005|
This one goes in my favorites! I can't believe I didn't catch the spelling errors...and I was a classroom teacher for 11 years! I feel so "duh"!

2 WORDS- EASY & BORING. BUT GOOD JOB I GUESS.
Posted by pawz73 on Jul 04, 2005|
Picked out the word that didn't belong, but no clue as to why it didn't. Noticed a couple of misspellings, but didn't see the significance. Humbling for those of us who consider ourselves good spellers, and a reminder to really SEE what's out there.

That was a good one It took me awhile to figure it out, then I realized that the words were spelled wrong.
Posted by Sarah5225766 on Jul 04, 2005|
Haha! I got it right, but i didn't know how to spell any of those words, so i just picked the only one w/o an "e"
Posted by okieman51 on Jul 04, 2005|
Me too. It was the only word without an e. lol Did not even think of spelling. but is a good one
Posted by flipflopchica on Jul 04, 2005|
That was good. I didn't even try it cause I had no idea. I'm so bad at group puzzles I always get them wrong.
Posted by skimela on Jul 04, 2005|
i noticed all the other ones were spelt wrong but i didnt make the link! DOH!
Posted by beerexs on Jul 04, 2005|
Dude, that was a good one I was coparing and contrasting all along not even making myself aware to the fact that it was spelled wrong.
Posted by semibogus on Jul 04, 2005|
didn't see it at all, abcess looked funny but it didn't register either.
Total miss sheesh, Good stuff.
Posted by short_shorts on Jul 04, 2005|
I wasn't in the mood to do really smart thinking lol. And who knows whst half of thoses words ment anyway! like i knew if they were spelled wrong! i've never seen some of those words before in my life. Guess im stupid. didnt like it
Posted by soccer_chick70 on Jul 04, 2005|
way over my head... I was reading this and saw a couple words spelled wrong, and was thinking "maybe I should submit a correction of those spellings" I even had the correction part filled out (in a separate Internet Explorer window) when I gave up on the teaser and looked at the answer... boy did I feel stupid!!
Posted by Yoyobug02 on Jul 04, 2005|
lol for some reason i got it right away

Dang! Got me!
Posted by scm14 on Jan 28, 2006|
Very tricky!!! I'm a terrible speller, so I didn't even notice the errors. I thought it was sovreign because it was the only one without double letters. Great job, fish!!!
