You have to choose the word that is different from three or four words.

  • Read all the words carefully.
  • Find a connection before you choose the word which is different.
  • If you don’t understand a word in the group, it may be connected to the other words. Don’t choose a word because you don’t understand it. Find a connection first.
  • Sometimes you have to explain why it is different. Check the instructions.
  • If you don’t know the word which is different, guess. You may be right!
  • Check your answers carefully when you finish.

Hi MALINE! In question 7 'bad' is the only negative adjective so that's the odd one out. You did well in the exercise :)
