Choose the word that does not belong with the others. For all of the puzzles, guess if you are not sure of the answer, & look for the best answer. When you're finished, you can rank yourself with the scale below. Feel free to add a few points to your score if your native language is not English, and/or if you are under age 18. You'll find the answers on this page. Work those verbal neurons, test your knowledge, & have fun!
