In the 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. By being methodical, you can work your way through this series of quizzes very easily.
