About This Quiz

Black and white. Cold and warm. Light and dark. Courage and fear. Careful and careless. Bitter and sweet. Easy enough, right? Well, these are all opposites. But when you have a list of similar words, with the exception of one, does it get harder?

Here’s what we’ve done: We did our research and pulled together a list of words that have something in common and then threw in there an outlier. It’s fun and it also tests your knowledge. It’s true what they say: sometimes the most obvious things are completely invisible (or in this case, the mind).

Anyway, we have a list of funny and interesting historical, geographical and even theatrical facts for you to read through and identify which is the “intruder” among the synonyms/related words. There’s that one option that doesn’t belong, and it's your job to find it and flag it to see what score you can get on this quiz.

So, are you up for the challenge? Grab a drink, some snacks and get comfortable! Which of the following words is not like the others? Take this quiz and test your knowledge!
