Cool quiz! I'll probably feature it. But before I do, I want to add a feature to allow explanatory text that will appear after the quiz is over.

For the "Rivers" question, the correct response is Thames, but the explanation still mentions the Seine.

OK, I almost picked Seine and then picked Amazon because:
  • Yangtze
  • Nile
  • Amazon
  • Seine
The Amazon is the only river on the list that doesn't end in the letter E.

You could say "it's the only one that ends in a vowel" for many of these questions. But, in any case, I changed Seine to Thames.

The new version of the question looks good, but the reason given still refers to the Seine.

Got it all right, but almost missed the first question. My first thought was that horses are the only ones you don't usually eat, but decided that 4 legs was more important in the end.
Also just a minor point, but isn't Catherine of Aragon usually spelt with a C, not a K?

In Belgium they eat horse. Also, changed the spelling of Catherine.

While it's taboo in places the US and UK, horse meat is eaten in many places in Asia, Europe and the Americas (e.g. Chile, Quebec, Switzerland, etc etc etc). In Japan it's nicknamed sakuraniku because of its colour, and usually served as either sashimi or yakiniku (barbecue).

'The only one that is ...' doesn't really make sense in an odd-one-out quiz - I expect you could find loads of alternative answers for each of the questions if you can say 'the only one that is ...'

My brain went in a completely different direction, because Japan is the only one that is an island nation.

Horse is the only one you can ride. Japan is the only island country. Neon is the only element humans don't need. Yangtze is the only river that has no major tributaries. The Colossus of Rhodes is the only structure that has been completely destructed.

Gandalf is the only wizard. Fedora is the only item of clothing worn by Indiana Jones. Saturn is the only one that starts with S. Who cares?

Jan 15, 2019
I think you are nitpicking just a bit. I wasn't going into irrelevant details like Indiana Jones' clothing or a starting letter. My point was these aren't about right and wrong answers but rather about the point on wiev...

The question isn't "which one is special," it's "which doesn't match the unifying characteristics of the other 3." I think that "not an island country" or "major river that has tributaries" is a little bit more obscure of a unifying factor than "country in Asia" or "longest on continent."

Slight pedantry: technically all elements can be gaseous. Calcium just requires extreme temperatures to reach its boiling point. And yes, I'm a lot of fun at parties.
