السلام عليكم

This game focuses on comprehension and works on trying to match different words in the right context. A set of words will be posted. Try to understand how the words can fit into the same context and decide which is the odd word in the group (give a reason for your choice). Copy and paste the words back but make sure to colour/bold the odd word!

1) مِلْعَقَةٌ , مَطْبَخٌ , مِرْوَحَةٌ , سِكِّينٌ

مع السلامة

ps: The words can fit into different contexts, so you may want to post in more than one answer...

Is the odd word مِرْوَحَةٌ since it is not an object of the Kitchen.

Alternatively the odd word could also be مَطْبَخٌ since its not a household object like the other three.

2) مَلْعَبٌ , أطْفَالُ , قَلَمٌ , سَعَادَةٌ

the odd one is قَلـَمٌ for it is a pen
The rest are human

مَلْعَبٌ = Playground

أطْفَالُ = Children

قَلَمٌ = Pen

سَعَادَةٌ = Happiness

There can be more than one context implied here, but personally I would agree with you:

1) قَلَمٌ = Pen
This may be the odd word out as children are often happy in the playground (and it is rarely ever due to the presence of a pen, they are usually happy to be outside of a classroom!) Well done for the getting the answer, but the reasoning was incorrect in this case as the only human in the list was children, the other two were an intangible concept (happiness), and a place (playground).
