In this teaser, you have to find the odd ones out in the groups of words. BUT WAIT! There’s a catch. Each group of words has TWO words which do not belong. Can you find them both?

EXAMPLE:
Lily - Jane - Tulip - Rose
Jane does not belong as it’s the only one which is not a flower.
Tulip also does not belong because it’s the only one which is not a girl’s name.

You’re on your own for the rest!

  1. Aqua - Hazel - Willow - Cherry

  2. Cat - Sword - Hamster - Dog

  3. Prince - Double - Queen - King

[details=Answers –] 1. Aqua does not belong as it's the only one which is not a tree. Willow does not belong as it's the only one which is not a color.
  1. Sword does not belong as it’s the only one which is not a family pet. Hamster does not belong as it’s the only one which is not a type of fish.

  2. Double does not belong as it’s the only one which is not a person of royalty. Prince does not belong as it’s the only one which is not a bed size.[/details]


#376

This is kinda weird. Some of these seem like they could have different answers/reasons but I took a stab at it:

guesses
  1. a) Aqua doesn’t belong because it is the only one that starts with a vowel/isn’t a tree
    b) Willow doesn’t belong because it is the only one that isn’t a color

  2. a) Sword doesn’t belong because it is the only one that isn’t an animal
    b) Hamster doesn’t belong because it isn’t a type of fish

  3. a) Double doesn’t belong because it is the only one that isn’t royalty
    b) King doesn’t belong because it is the only one that isn’t 5 letters long.
    *b) Prince doesn’t belong because the other 3 are bed sizes…?

E: forum changed my list format on post


#377

Actually, you did well. All of them are correct (if I don’t count your vowel answer).
