Two Odd Ones Out 2

It's cats and dogs in question 8 - and there's a clue!

Two Odd Ones Out 2

This 11-plus verbal reasoning quiz challenges you to find the odd ones out. There are two odd ones out in the list of words. Three words are related, and two words do not belong with the others. Find the two words that do NOT go with these three and choose the correct button from the four choices available.

The easiest way to do these quizzes is to look at the first word, and then compare the second. If they seem to go together, look at the third and compare it with the first two. If it doesn't match, go to the next word and compare it.

If you found the first in this series fun to do, you will really enjoy this quiz, but look out for tricky questions where you really have to think hard before answering!

An example has been done to help you.
