Picture Puzzles: Can You Spot the Odd One Out in Less Than 10 Seconds?

May 9, 2020 Updated: May 9, 2020

Are you ready for a fun brainteaser? Well, this is not anything super tricky or complicated, but the challenge remains: if you can solve this in under 10 seconds, it means you are way smarter and are able to set your mind to focus on a particular task.

The rules for all three puzzles below are the same. On each of the picture puzzles, your task is to find the odd one out. Hint: The differences are often in the smaller details, so make sure you give it your full focus and attention.

If in case the puzzles seem a bit daunting and you are tempted to scroll far down for the answers, make sure you have checked every corner of the image, as the little “odd-one-out” object you’re looking for can be very easy to miss. Get, set, and here you go…

Puzzle 1

The first challenge seems easy. Below is an image depicting several rows of the number six. However, hiding amongst them is the letter “G.” See if you can find it!

So, have you found it? If yes, great going! If not, don’t worry about it, as you can find the correct answer by scrolling down. But, maybe you would want to give it one more shot! Have fun.

Puzzle 2

The second puzzle is a tad more challenging. Here the photo shows three columns with the number 890 repeated over and over again. However, there’s one three-digit number that doesn’t actually belong in the sea of the 890s. It’s the number 609, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Get, set, go hunting!

Did you manage to spot that sneaky 609? If not, give yourself a few seconds to analyze every corner of the image. It may seem like the odd one out isn’t there, but it is!

If you still haven’t seen it, scroll down even further for the results.

Puzzle 3

So, here we are at the third and final challenge. This photo seems to be filled with tiny little yellow bananas. Before you go hungry, let us quickly inform you that there are hundreds of them, and they all look the same.

Now, what you have to do is figure out which one of these bananas is not a banana at all—but a boomerang, instead. The tiny boomerang looks “invisible” surrounded by all those little bananas, and if you are already finding it close to impossible to spot, don’t give up; try again!

According to Psychology Today, regularly exercising your brain can improve memory, concentration, and lateral-thinking abilities. It is incredible how a pleasant pastime like solving puzzles or crosswords may have such huge benefits on your overall health.
