Monthly Brainteaser and September’s answerTuesday, October 4th, 2011
Last month I asked you think up a word, a singular noun that, if you add one letter to the end, becomes plural and, if you add the same letter to the end again, becomes singular again. I came up with:
Prince - princes - princess. How about you?
Now, for this month, what do the following sentences have in common – yet which is the odd one out?
- If you are deaf you should file your tax return before the rainy season begins.
- When the sailors’ mission inducted a young female pastor, quayside services at both ports were resumed.
- Edmund took pickled onions to feed the swans each time he walked his goat in the park.
- Joseph played a low card if Frances, blind in one eye, led with clubs in the over sixties annual tournament.
- The new Ark Royal was ordered to make for a Dutch port before the clocks were put back.
- Since Jason avoided neither the waterfall, nor the bog, nor the tumbling stream, he got his new plus-fours wet and dirty.
More next month.
