    Question CELTA Application task

    Hello all!

    I am new here and am going to apply for a CELTA course in Germany.
    My mother tongue is Russian, but I studied English for some years in Russia. It seems that my language awareness is not good enough to do the CELTA assignment correctly. I would appreciate any help greatly.

    The task is as follows:

    Which of the items in each group is different from the others and in what way?
    A to need
    B to show
    C to bring
    D to open

    At first I thought that (A) is the odd one out because it can be used as a modal verb and in this case the Infinitive after it is used without to. But now I am not sure.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Tdol, thank you for your answer. Are you sure? 2 members have confirmed my answer with a) need.(in the other thread).
    But your answer is also logical. I have no idea. But need is the first what occurred to me.
