Discussion :: Verbal Classification - Type 1 (Q.No.2)

Three of the words will be in the same classification, the remaining one will not be. Your answer will be the one word that does NOT belong in the same classification as the others.


Which word does NOT belong with the others?

[A]. inch
[B]. ounce
[C]. centimeter
[D]. yard

Answer: Option B


An ounce measures weight; the other choices measure length.

I believe that option C. is a valid answer, because, A., B., & D. are all standard measurment. C. is a metric measurement.

Hey the other 3 inch, cm, yard can be converted into feet, mm, cm, square foot but ounce can be converted into only to gram, ml, litre.

Akshay said: (Feb 25, 2011)  
I agree to joel. A, B and D are imperial units whereas cm is an SI unit.

As Per my opinion Inch, ounce, Yard connected to each other. Then the answer should be Option- C.

Mahantesh said: (Feb 21, 2012)  
In my view the distance is measured in inch,cm and yard but weight is measured in ounce.

Deepe said: (Sep 17, 2012)  
Ounce is used to measure weight only. So 'c' is correct option.

Prasaanth said: (Mar 18, 2013)  
Ounce is correct answer because distance cannot be connected with weight.

I agree with @Mahantesh distance is measured in inch, yard, and cm but weight is measured in ounce.

It's a terrible question because classification by either scale or context are both different within the set, so there are two answers that meet the provided criteria.

Faizi said: (May 5, 2015)  
Anyone please explain the meaning of yard.

Praneeth said: (Jul 21, 2015)  
I think 'yard' means an area of land in which a particular type of work is done, often one from which goods are sold.

Marshall said: (Jun 20, 2016)  
A yard is a unit of measurement.

I think the correct choice should have been centimeter. Centimeter is in the metric system. The other options are not.

Sowmiya said: (Jul 4, 2016)  
What is the purpose of the yard?

As you guys said it is also used for measurement, but what we measure in that?

Sachin said: (Sep 17, 2016)  
I agree with the answer ounce.

Sarath said: (Jan 27, 2017)  
You are correct @Prasaanth.

Esther Ezeh said: (Jun 1, 2017)  
Onuce is the correct answer.

Prasad said: (Jun 26, 2017)  
Simply, test is consecutive and it is more difficult than I expected.

Md Amir Warsi said: (Jul 23, 2017)  
Ounce is the correct answer.

"What is the purpose of the yard? As you guys said it is also used for measurement, but what we measure in that?".

A yard is used to measure distance and comes from the UK. It is almost the same length as a metre which has replaced it as a measure of distance.

1 mile = 1670 yards.

In the US the word yard is used instead of back garden. Parneeth is correct as it is also used in business to describe the land on which business is carried out. E. G. Scrap yard where waste metal is collected.

Both answers - B and C are correct.
B because A C and D measure distance, and B measures weight.
C because A B and D are imperial (UK origin) measurements and C is metric (French origin).
