    I guess the odd number is 3124, since it is the only one not requiring
    both hands when typed correctly on a standard keyboard.

    Actually, it IS a correct solution. Given the limited amount of
    information in the original problem, it solves the problem. My answer
    simply is one of at least two correct answers, and is obviously not the
    one you are looking for. But, does that make it "wrong"?

    Would you like to update the problem including more specific
    requirements, everyone could perhaps take another look.\

    In all but one case the outside numbers multiplied together gives the
    number in the middle eg 4246 , 4x6=24

    Of course any of the numbers could be the odd one out, given sufficiently complicated
    reasoning.
