Odd One Out questions are usually presented as a line of 5 symbols. Working left to right scan the symbols to observe similarities and differences between them.
You need to look at the elements of the symbols in relation to outlines, shading, line thickness, orientation (i.e. which direction the symbol is ‘pointing’), size, and position in relation to other parts of the main symbol. The number of each of these elements is important too.
In fact, you need to observe all the usual NVR suspects!
What observations do we notice about these usual suspects in example 1?
What logical steps can we make when we apply these observations to find the Odd One Out??
What observations do we notice about these usual suspects in this example?
What logical steps can we make when we apply these observations to the task of finding an odd one out?
Odd Ones Outs do not always have to be the one obvious Odd One Out of 4 symbols that are similar (example1). The symbols can also be presented in a combination of one Odd One Out and 2 sets of 2 matching symbols. So while the majority of questions are answered by 1 odd, 4 the same always look for 1 symbol odd, 2 symbols the same, 2 symbols also the same but different again from the other 2. This is shown in Example 2 above.
