  1. He was playing Monopoly.


  2. Third, only numeric word capitalized.


  3. David R Satterfield

    Third. It is the only one with a “D” in it and doesn’t end in “TH”.


  4. Fourth. It has the vowels O and U none of the others have


  5. Third is the only word here that does not end in “th”. In another sense, the third person in a relationship is a threeway. Four or more is an orgy.


  6. I could go two ways with this: Third, because it’s the only one that doesn’t end in th or Seventh, because it’s the only one that’s two syllables.


  7. Fifth, it is a bottle of booze


  8. Third – all others end in “th”, whereas this one begins with “th”.


  9. Third – it doesn’t end it “th”.


  10. Bella Sebastion

    Third- only one not ending in th


  11. “third” ends in “rd”; the others end in “th”


  12. “third” ends in “rd”; all the others end in “th”


  13. Fourth is the only word in the list that does not share vowels with any other. Seventh is the only word with two syllables. Eighth is the only word with four consonants in a row. Third does not use ‘th’ to end a root number sound. That pattern would be ‘threeth’.

    So I really don’t know the answer.


  14. Third. It’s the only one that doesn’t end In “th”
