odd-one-out test

Quick Reference

A type of intelligence test item or subtest in which the respondent has to choose which of several alternatives is the odd one out. A typical (difficult) example is: Which of the following is the odd one out? DET, DIS, EOJ, GEM, NEK. Although various choices could be justified, the ‘correct’ answer to this item is GEM, because this is an abbreviated female name written backwards, and all the others are abbreviated male names written backwards.
