  1. @Riley

Curriculum is the only word without the letter 'o'.

  1. @WELZ, @QuantumTwinkie

Potatoes are the only one not related to travel. -WELZ

Radar, Kayak, Race car are spelled the same backwards, but not potato -QuantumTwinkie.

  1. @WELZ, @Riley

rot13 gives

Help
Eight Days a Week
Don't Stop Believin
Here Comes the Sun
Hey Jude
where "Don't Stop Believin" is the only song not by the Beatles.

  1. @Riley

"Earth" is the odd one out because the other words "purple", "orange", "ninja", "iron", and "music" arguably have no rhymes.

  1. @Riley

Each line is rot13 except the first, which is rot25. The decoded lines are:

You have found it
I be QuantumTwinkie
You are reading this
Some words
Puzzles are fun

Partial Answer

Guess on 1.

Curriculum is the only word not containing the letter "o".

4.

It could be "earth" as the other words "orange", "purple", "ninja", "iron", and "music" arguably have no rhymes.

5.

Applying rot13 to all of the lines we get

Mci vojs tcibr wh
I be QuantumTwinkie
You are reading this
Some words
Puzzles are fun
 
So the first line is clearly the odd one out. Also, it is a ROT cipher, just not ROT13. It encodes "You have found it"

Partial Answer:

The differences:

1: Curriculum
2: Potatoes
3: Qba'g Fgbc Oryvriva (Don't Stop Believin)
4:
5: Zpv ibwf gpvoe ju (rot25 to You have found it)


1:

Curriculum doesn't have an O (all the other ones do)

2:

Potatoes (The other 3 somehow relate to travel)

3:

Rot13'd truns up:

Help
Eight Days a Week
Don't Stop Believin
Here Comes the Sun
Hey Jude

As Riley mentioned:
All the songs are by the Beatles, except Don't Stop Believin (Journey)

4:

Unknown for now

5: (From Riley's answer)

First line: Mci vojs tcibr wh
rot25 is: "You have found it"
rest are rot13

    $\begingroup$ If everything's correct, I'll make a community wiki answer if that's okay. $\endgroup$ – Riley Apr 16 '18 at 0:35
  • $\begingroup$ So, all are solved but I had the reason for number 2 because all of the other words were the same backwards and forwards (radar,kayak, race car) $\endgroup$ – QuantumTwinkie Apr 16 '18 at 0:36
