Two Odd Ones Out 4

Finding two odd ones out is about comparing each word in turn.

In the 11-plus verbal reasoning questions that follow, 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.

Thomas Jefferson, the third American President. didn't believe in luck as a way to becoming successful, but he did believe in hard work, saying, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it." So work as hard as you can, and don't trust to luck when completing Odd Ones Out quiz number 4. An example has been done to help you.
