Find the odd one out and say why.
(i) Tourist guide, dhobi, tailor, potter
(ii) Teacher, doctor, vegetable vendor, lawyer
(iii) Postman, cobbler, soldier, police constable
(iv) MTNL, Indian Railways, Air India, SAHARA Airlines, All India Radio
(i) Among these four occupations tourist guide is the odd one because dhobi, tailor, potter all these three belong to private sector they do their work for profit only and can start working at any point of time and anywhere even at small scale but for a tourist guide these things are not that easy and first of all a tourist guide is appointed by the government and he serves the foreigners and but do not work just for profit.
(ii) Among these persons teacher, doctor, vegetable vendor, lawyer vegetable vendor is the odd one because to be a teacher, doctor, lawyer you must have skills and education which will be helpful in your in establishing your career as these occupations but for vegetable selling education does not matter that much because an uneducated person can also sell vegetables and all what it needs just good communication and calculation which depends on environment and not that big deal.
(iii) Among postman, cobbler, soldier, police constable, the cobbler is odd one because the profession of a cobbler belongs to public sector and at the same time it belongs to illiterate community and impoverished people. But on the other side postman, soldier, police constable these are the people who belong to literate community and basically they are from good family background not that much poor and bad.
(iv) Among these companies named as MTNL, Indian Railways, Air India, SAHARA Airlines, ALL India Radio, the odd one is SAHARA Airlines. Because it is a private enterprise while others are owned by the government.
