CAT Odd One Out

Five sentences related to a topic are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a meaningful and coherent short paragraph. Identify the odd one out. Choose its number as your answer and key it in.

  1. It is a bonding process with the entire situation where you, your car, and its name make the entire equation.
  2. Good car names are catchy and fit the product, such as the ‘Beetle’ or the ‘Mini’.
  3. Marketing departments of car companies spend a lot of time and money thinking up names for cars.
  4. The car you drive tells the world about your status, how much money you have, and the socioeconomic group you belong to (or want to belong to).
  5. The names should be a reflection of the brand, product, and target group.

Answer

The paragraph is about car names. These sentences talk of the importance of a good car name. Sentence (4) talks of owning a car and associated status, which does not find mention in any of the other sentences and hence, is the odd one out.

The correct answer is 4.
