Trick Question - from Brain of Britian - Radio 4 Saturday

Which is the odd one out of the following States of the USA.
The Northern most State
The Southern most State
The Eastern most State
The Western most State
Fooled me until I thought about it. (I've changed the format of the question a little).

If you include all the States the odd one out is the southern most one.

Re: Trick Question - from Brain of Britian - Radio 4 Saturday

On the program, it was agreed that Hawaii was eligible to be considered. As journeys says, he's changed the question a bit from the way it was asked. If I remember correctly, I think they just asked for the names of the four states.
Not that that makes it very much easier....    Roll eyes

Uhmm! even a US spell checker should find that one. Ah well! maybe not so much these days' perhaps.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The Eastern is the only one to begin with a vowel...
