And why? [END]
The red square (2nd in from the left) – because it hasn’t got a white border.
All of them. They’re all different. (And frankly. a bit odd.)
The circle in the middle.
Yes the circle is the only one shaped like that. The only shape in those presented with no corners.
The white-bordered square on the extreme left; it is the only one which has no unique characteristic.
I like the last explanation but agree, they’re all a bit odd.
How come no one has chosen the one that is green? This is perhaps excluding MacHeath with her comment about unique characteristics, which implicitly acknowledges that colour as a distinctive characteristic.
To me they are all shapes: that is their collective noun. So shapedness is not a limitation on what is a distinctive and differentiating characteristic. [If it were, the 5th one would not be different from the 1st – as it is size, not shape, that differentiates them.]
Despite all this, I do agree MacHeath has the most sophisticated and over-reaching case: it is a differentiation at the second level.
Have we missed something at the third level?
Only one is a circle so that is the odd shape. While all are different in colour, design or size the question asked specifically for shape.
Chuckles has sent an explanation – it is the one on the left as it’s the only one to share a characteristic with each of the others.
The bloke on the right is the odd one out.
The old geezer on the right seems a very odd shape.
