I am asked to find the odd one out ....

taken went seen forgotten ---- i put went as all rest are in past partciple

bright early good and some .----- some quantifier

never but unless because-- never conjuctions

luggage cup cutlery furniture -- cutlery nouns '

rough tough enough cough--- enough its not an adjective


I was asked to reevaluate my answer but i am soo confused can some one please shed some light ??


what my evaluator said :

[FONT=comic sans ms, sans-serif]Again, lots of good points made here. Let's standardise the format a little so it is easier. For example:[/FONT]
[FONT=comic sans ms, sans-serif]'a' - went is X and the others are past participles.[/FONT]
[FONT=comic sans ms, sans-serif]'b' - some is a quantifier and the others are X.[/FONT]
[FONT=comic sans ms, sans-serif]Follow this structure for the other examples and think about whether the other words in 'c' are in fact all prepositions and whether 'cough' in 'd' is an adjective.[/FONT]

taken went seen forgotten ---- i put went as all rest are in past partciple

bright early good and some .----- some quantifier

never but unless because-- never conjunctions (I think you are right, but for the wrong reason.)

luggage cup cutlery furniture -- cutlery nouns '(Three of them are nouns that have no singular form.)

rough tough enough cough--- enough it's not an adjective (No, it's not enough.)

Also, Engish pronunciation can be rather unpredictable. ;-)

I'm closing the thread. You're supposed to answer the questions.
