The first one. it is the only object to share at least 1 feature with at least 3 other objects (3 squares, 3 full size objects, 3 black outlines, 3 red objects) all the rest are unique in 1 way.

The first shape. It’s the only one that belongs to every group. I love the irony.

The first one.
Every other object has one distinguishing feature from all other objects.
Conversely, the first object has a distinguishing feature, be it border, shape, color or size from individual objects.

The first from left to right does not go, because its the perfect figure the others are imperfect figures.
Explanation:
4 features: SIZE,BORDER,COLOR,FIGURE
Each figure has 2 values:
SIZE: BIG, SMALL (1,0)
BORDER: DARK, LIGHT (1,0)
COLOR: RED, GREEN (1,0)
FIGURE: SQUARE, CIRCLE (1,0)
THE PERFECT FIGURE ADD TO 4
ALL THE IMPERFECT FIGURES ADD TO 3 SO
THE BIG DARK RED SQUARE DOES NOT BELONG TO THE GROUP

Cool puzzle Bilbao, very nice and abstract.

the first one

I was wondering what had happened!

I guessed Image 1 (leftmost)because it’s the only image that isn’t an ‘odd-man-out’ on sight.

2 – only shape without a border
3 – only circle
4 – only green shape
5 – only small shape

so that leaves the first one as the “true” odd-man-out

I assume the question is “which shape of the following 5 shapes does not belong…”

At first glance, we might have several answers:
– All have red, then the green square is out
– All are squares, then the red circle is out
– All have 2 colours or a black border, then the purely red square is out
– Coloured area + half of black area = constant, then the small red square is out

I think the first doesn’t belong (but the logic is circuitous). The relevant features are size, color, shape and presence of a black border.

The first object has three features in common with the other four objects. For example, objects 1 and 2 are squares, they are the same size and they are red. 1 & 3 share color, size and black border, etc.

Objects 2-5 have only two features in common with each other (but obviously have three features in common with object # 1). Based on this, 2-5 have more in common with each other (i.e., number of shared features) than with object # 1.

2nd one >>> no frame..

3rd one >>> circle (not a square)..

4th one >>> green (not red)..

5th one >>> smaller (not same size)..

So 1st one is the one that doesn’t belong!!!

P.S.:
What is the criteria for the difficulty of the puzzle(no. of stars)?

Thank You.

The one on the left is the only one that matches all the others in at least one attribute.

… er, rather three attributes.

Must be the first one, red square outlined in black. Each of the other shapes have something totally unique about them (color, shape, size, outline), but the first shape shares each of these traits with at least one other member of the group. It doesn’t belong because it belongs too much!!!

very good, the 1st one.

Hi Falwan: visitors can rate the difficulty of the puzzle themselves, and the site displays an average.

An interesting paradox… the first one is unique because it is the only one that is not unique. But, of course, that makes them all unique in one way, and therefore none are. I guess you could say that the first one doesn’t belong because, while they are all unique in one way, the first object’s uniqueness pertains to an attribute that can only be described relative to the set, rather than the other four, whose uniqueness pertain to attributes that can each be descibed singularly about an object. The first one is the only “meta-unique” object, so to speak, or the only one whose uniqueness is derived rather than observed.

The plain red square because ther is no black border!

16. blackpanda | Profile

the first one

For me it’s the circle. ‘coz the others are square regardless of the color and the border
