Which is the odd one out from the following:

2, 3, 9, 19, 36, 62, 92

Your options are:

  1. 3
  2. 9
  3. 19
  4. 36

I did not create this puzzle myself. It was shared by someone in my exam preparation group on Telegram.

  • $\begingroup$ One can come up with practically any answer to questions like this. E.g. use Lagrange interpolation to construct a one-variable polynomial that takes these values except for the one you want to exclude at integers 1 through 6. To be able to provide a more helpful answer, it would be necessary to disclose the assumed background. $\endgroup$ – Hermetically Sealed Halibut Sep 19 at 16:46
  • $\begingroup$ Do you have any more specific information on where this comes from? Is it part of some ongoing exam or competition? $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Sep 19 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ I am just wondering is this supposed to be a sequence? $\endgroup$ – Prince Deepthinker Sep 19 at 18:23
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah this is supposed to be part of logical reasoning sections. Very common in indian examinations. U can easily see these type of questions in exams for MBA like iift , nmat , snap ect.U can look for related questions for attribution on these kind of problems $\endgroup$ – aditya manral Sep 19 at 18:47

19, because it has an even number of syllables.

NEW ANSWER

I think it is 19

Because

It is the odd one out because it contains the only digit that is not shared by the other numbers in the list: which is 1. The rule is that all the digits of every number is shared by at least one digit from another number in the list.

I think it is the number 2 because its name contains the fewest number of letters.
