Say hello to Rebecca, whose likes and dislikes will help you solve today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game Free-for-all Friday challenge. Good luck!
Rebecca likes records, but doesn't care for cassettes.
She'd rather travel the desert than the ocean.
Rebecca prefers entrances to exits.
She's rather catch a bass than a tuna.
With all these in mind, which one of these four
elements would likely be Rebecca's favorite?
gold, tin, carbon, lead
Rebecca's favorite element is LEAD.
She's a fan of words that are heteronyms, meaning they have different pronunciations and meanings. The words "records," "desert," "entrances" and "bass" can all be pronounced in a different way with a different meaning. So, naturally, Rebecca would prefer "lead."
NOTE: These puzzles sometimes lend themselves to alternate "correct" answers. If you came up with one, feel free to share it with us in the comments below. And have a great weekend!
