    nope.

    Replace 'preach' with 'seek' in question 2, as it's currently ambiguous.

    The last one could be 33 as it's not a triangular number like 10, 21 and 55.

    it also could be 10, because it's the even one out

    can anyone give some reasoning for their answers?

    laos b/c for all i know its the only one not in africa
    bring b/c the others all have to do w/ saying sumthin
    10 b/c its the only one w/o a factor of 2


    and yes, i do know my answers are wrong

    I think this demonstrates the difficulty of setting 'odd one out' puzzles. opsoccergurl11 is right about question 2 (though I had another answer in mind) RC and piderman are both right about question 3.

    Re number 1
    As "teach, sing, bring, seek" the odd one out is "teach" because its the only word that doesn't make a new word if you add "s" to the end.

    If left as "teach, sing, bring, preach" the odd one out is "bring", because its the only word that is not an occupation if you add "er" to the end.
