      I think the second is the odd one out of the symbols. It’s really best brain game to play. I used to play these types of brain teasers in my spare time, which really affects my brain to work efficiently. It’s really fun and interesting brain teasers.

      I think it’s the red non border square because it is not similar to the other pictures that are with black borders. I am happy to see such a useful blog to improve logical knowledge and happily waiting for further blog posts.

    square without the stroke - that's a photoshop geek would say anyway.

    I would say the neon-green square. Am I wrong?

    first red square with frame on the left is odd - there's nothing odd about it
    the other ones are either small,green,round or frameless

    First red square - it has always one more attribute in common with the shape you're comparing to than the rest of the shapes.

    The question did say “shape”, therefore it must be the circle.

    Gotta say the first one. It has only one property different from all the others. The first one is the hub of the "similarity graph".
