WRONG.

The question asks about the SHAPE.
SHAPE is "square, circle" etc etc.

A white "frame" has NOTHING to do with SHAPE.

"Odd one out" is also not a shape.
NOR is it the dominant in the sentence structure.

If it were, PERHAPS "A" would be correct.

Given the question asked, "C" is correct.

I CALL BULL.

^ Trouble is, the word "shape" is ambiguous. It has many meanings.
Given the book answer, it seems to mean "figure," in the question.
I agree, though, it's a deceptive question (not clever, just deceptive).
Of course, if an answer is too obvious, one should look for an overlooked ambiguity.

Alternatively, one could argue that the left figure, being an odd-man-out as the others are, can't be the correct answer, either, because of that.
Therefore, the correct answer is the circle, which is the answer to the only unambiguous interpretation of the question.

Obviously, the supposed correct answer is the government bureaucracy interpretation.

Make your choice, then follow the link and read their answer. Now start the fight.

I think this is more a test of your belief in yourself and your ability to make logical arguments; their answer is wrong and I will not knuckle under to their bullshit.

They argue that the latter 4 figures are all OMO because "they're like the first figure, except for ...", therefore the first figure is the odd one because it is the base comparator. This is weak logic, because any of the figures can be the base to which the others are compared. "Number 1 is just like number 4, except it's red not green; number 2 is just like number 4 except it's red not green and has no white border" and so on.

So I choose #2, which is just as OMO as all of the other ones, which are just like it except for individual differences.

Hey wait a second ... dat's raycis!!!

OMO - odd man out, same as odd one out. Hey, it's late at night already.

We have all been trained to solve classic
logic problems. This means that almost
everyone will select B. I have to admit
that I chose B, but the clue was the word
shape. It is a lot like the classic gag
about an airplane that crashed right down
the middle of the border between Canada
and the US.

The question was "Which country was
responsible for burying the survivors?"

Ya gotta pay attention to the question!
