Odd One Out

Odd One Out

Thanks for playing Triple O with us. Let's find the odd one out. We'll give you a group of four GoPo terms. You figure out which one does NOT belong.

Example A

a)    Judicial

b)    Legislative

c)    Executive

d)    Ministry of Magic

Very good, the answer is d - the Ministry of Magic is not one of the three branches of the US government, yet!!!!! Expecto Patronum!

Here’s another one!

Example A+

a)    Tree frog

b)    Bactrian Camel

c)    Anteater

d)    Donald Trump

Which one doesn’t belong?

That’s right. c - the anteater doesn’t belong. According to Article I, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution Anteaters cannot be impeached.

You'll get one point for the correct answer (objective) and one point for the most creative and ingenious answer (subjective). The teacher will give one point for each objectively correct answer, and, if you convince them of the merit of your (incorrect) answer, you'll receive bonus points for ingenuity and original thinking. Add up your points and crown a Triple O Champion!
