    I chose the image of cows Picture (2): Because this is a great torment and injustice for the animals, the animals are exposed to dangerous and difficult work that leads to their death and fatigue. We do not forget that animals are living creatures that have feelings, we have to take care of them. This continuous and hard work is not satisfied by a human being for himself. This means that the animal should also enjoy safety as well as the human being.

      Why is this an odd one out compared to others?

        In the beginning, cows are pets that eat plants unlike the rest, and many countries of the world use these cows in agricultural operations, cows seem unhappy that they are tied from their heads and work without rest, because of the person who uses them to work only without looking at their feelings and fatigue.

      I disagree with what you've said amiable_imagination's because those cattles are used to help plow the soil in order for crops to grow, and by that they're helping us and theirselves to feed, like imagine there was no crops and it's difficult for us to plow soil the cattles will die. In addition, plowing soil happens 2_4 times a year so they aren't giving a lot of effort to feel severe fatigue. Lastly, as sedentiry life ruins humans' health it may lead cattle to some diseases so they might work to burn some fat.

        Hello @trusting_pear,
        You make a good suggestion on how cows help plough the soil. However, are cows the only solution to ploughing soils? can you do a little research on other tools and modern technology available in our present day which could perform exactly the same activity ?

        Also, you make a claim on cows ploughing and its effect on their health. Are the two activities correlated? Perhaps, understanding the dietary requirements of animals are essential in the first place to prevent related health issues? Can you delve deeper on your search on this as well?

          Yaw @ Arup's comment 21 Apr 2022

          Of course cows aren't the only solution for ploughing the soil, and now in our modern technology century we have a lot of technological machines that does so... but, the question is will all farmers be able to provide those machines? Noting that they're pretty expensive... In order to not go further, my village's farmers and especially my grand dad can't offer such machines so they need cattle to help them, otherwise they treat them well.

            hello @trusting_pear, you make very good points on the financial difficulties affecting local farmers including you granddad. Certainly these are realistic issues which needs more deliberation on.
            However, are there any existing funds from your government for farmers in your community? if Yes, what is the scheme like and how can it help with the solution of integrating modern technology in farming?
            if not, can you do more research on other international agencies or NGO's willing to help on these issues? Can you then identify how this could help your community?

    I think that the first picture of the white tiger is very dangerous, this poor animal is directly exposed to danger, jumping from inside the Circle from a high place, it is dangerous for his life, it is imperative that he pick up or die if he falls, this is a dangerous work for the animals, they have feelings that we have to appreciate .

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because the tiger is working for entertainment while others are working for equally important reasons like farming and herding. But the tiger is an endangered specie making this act very dangerous, there is also a thing called tiger farming where tigers are breed for trade but a lot of them are also maltreated and used for illegal trade. When tigers are born into the entertainment industry and used for entertainment, they can no longer be released into the wild this in turn will affect the number in the wild.

    I chose the first picture of the white tiger, because this animal was created to jump and hunt freely in the wild, but human isolated it from his motherland and used it for commercial interests and financial gains, and this leads to killing the hunting instinct of these animals and affects their behavior and psyche.

    My odd one out is the tiger.
    I have chose this because it is by it's self and on the other hand, the other pictures are working as a team. Another reason is because the tiger is doing entertainment and acts for humans while the others are doing farming or work. Another thing is, that the tiger is endangered so if it is endangered, something could go wrong in the act. Lastly the biggest reason is, in the act, there are human's helping the tiger and there is a crowd cheering for the tiger but in the other photo's there are no people helping them and no crowd saying well done or congratulations.

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because it is a predator, and although the tiger is a predator, humans have managed to tame it and use it in circus shows. But the cattle and the sheep dog are not predators and cannot be used in circus performances. The cattle live as a herd and eat herbs, and the sheep dog also protects and organizes the flock of sheep, but tigers do not live in groups and herds but rather alone and eat meat.

    I think the stranger is the tiger
    I chose this answer because I think he is the only animal out of these three for whom his work is not suitable.
    The dog and the cows work for the good of humans, they are very important
    The dog tends the sheep. This saves the shepherd time and effort, as it prevents the livestock from violating the road and protects them from those who try to attack them.
    Cows plow the lands, this served us a lot in the ancient and modern era as well, where farmers with low incomes cannot provide bulldozers, so they use cows.
    As for the tiger, it is used for entertainment and it is threatened with extinction. It must be taken care of and help in its reproduction rather than making it work dangerous for it.

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because animals in picture A and B work on the farm, and though tigers are supposed to be in the wild, they are sometimes are used for entertainment mostly in circus. When tigers are reared by humans and used in the entertainment industry, it affects the balance in the ecosystem since a tiger in the wild plays a very significant role in the balance of the ecosystem. Tigers in the entertainment industry might have weak immune systems as compared to those in the wild that go through the normal cycle which are able to reproduce stronger breed because they get to mate with other varieties of tigers.

    My answer is the first picture which is tiger as we see some times players use it in circus 🎪 but the second and the third ones people can use them to help them in works. For example, dogs are used for guard or to take care of other animals like cheeps. Oxens are also used to help in agriculture.

    Cows are different from dogs and cats, and the reason is due to the difference in rank. Dogs and cats are classified as carnivores, a rank of mammals that includes more than 260 species of mammals and separated 42 million years ago into two main types, which are similar to cats and similar to canida. About finger animals, but they walk on two fingers, such as cows and antelopes

    The strange person is the dog with the sheep, because the dog feeds on meat, certainly including the sheep, yet the dog takes care of them and protects them and does not eat them, perhaps because its owner trained him to do so, and because of the characteristics of dogs the loyalty.

    The strange person is the white tiger, because all the animals work hard and tired, but they do not receive attention from people, but the white tiger, gets tired and hard, but in return he gets some encouragement and attention.

    My odd one out is picture b, (the cattle).
    I have chosen this one because the first and last picture has two species of living animals in them. In the first picture, there are humans and a tiger, while in the last picture there are sheep and a sheepdog but in the second picture, there are only cattle.

  • British Council.jpg amiable_imagination | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    14 Apr 2022

    My odd one out is The white tiger is because both the cows and the dog with the sheep work in nature (agriculture, herding) while the work of the white tiger is in the midst of people.

      amiable_imagination's comment 14 Apr 2022

      Good point, amiable_imagination! I noticed that in both cases (cattle/dog v tiger) you describe what they're doing as "work". Which form of work do you think is more difficult?

    I think the tiger is weird Although he is a predator, he works for entertainment and how this is. We do not know correctly that he was trained, but this does not mean that he is not a predator. Cows and others work in the service of humans, but they are treated in a hideous way. This is very sad.

      considerate_dolphin's comment 19 Apr 2022

      That's a great perspective, considerate_dolphin! You say cows and the sheepdog are treated in a hideous way. Why do you think of this? Could you give some examples?

    My odd one out is The dog, because it is somewhat free, runs in nature, and works in nature, it remains in the manner in which it was created, while the cows, the human controls them and deprives them of their freedom and takes them away from nature, the white tiger as well, is restricted and forced to work for man, he cannot To go free again.

  • British Council.jpg noble_world | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    14 Apr 2022

    I chose the tiger;Because the rest of the animals are not predators and the tiger is a predator;Because the remaining animals (dogs and caws) can be raised by humans; Because it is somewhat harmless, and also the dog protects the livestock and the cows plow the land while they help the farms. As for the tiger, it is a predatory animal that can eat livestock and does not protect them. I chose the tiger because there is no similarity between it and the rest of the animals as we mentioned previously.

    My odd one out is The cattle
    I have chosen this one because thay are working as a group, we have more than one cow, while there is one dog and one white tiger, we see that the cows look sad and angry in the picture, unlike the dog and tiger who seem happy with their work of herding or playing .

  • British Council.jpg terrific_moment | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    14 Apr 2022

    Cows are the strange picture Because it is the only picture that works, and we do not forget that its work is very tiring, even though it is a pet. As for Picture 1 and Picture 3, although they are predators, they enjoy the most beautiful enjoyment, but in this era the work has been developed and they made machines alternative to cows, so when they keep working, why not make them be for entertainment as in circuses, games and competitions that are held.

    The stranger is the tiger
    In this picture, we found out that they use the tiger for entertainment and to earn money, and they do not care whether the tiger is tired or hungry

    In my opinion, the dog is different, the tiger is used in the circus for the purpose of entertainment, while the dog is used for guarding, hunting and tracking the trail of thieves with the police, and it is also placed in front of the circus to guard it to prevent the entry of an intruder and to protect the circus from any attack.

    I would like to say the odd one out is the one with the cow, why you may all ask well the first picture looks like the tiger might actually be enjoying what it's doing, while the last picture is enjoying what it's doing clearly but the cows aren't they are being laboured and even humans don't like being laboured.

    The strange picture is actually cows, despite the fact that they are harmless pets.. They took advantage of the worst in carrying out difficult, exhausting work such as plowing the land.. They are linked, as shown in the picture, with each other in groups to accomplish their task quickly.. while we find the tiger and the dog at large.. It seems that their task is not as difficult as the cows.

    Picture number 3 (the tiger)
    1. In both pictures 1, 2, animals were used as a means of aid to the human being who gets tired and makes effort. In picture 3, the tiger was used for entertainment (it is true that he makes an effort, but his effort is not compared to the effort of the animals in pictures 1,2.
    2. In the two pictures (1 and 2), the animals do things that do not seem to pose a threat to their lives. On the other hand, the tigers around the world are endangered, and it is bad to use them in such works that may endanger their lives.

    14 Apr 2022

    Which of the pictures below is weird? The white tiger; Because he entertains and works for human beings while others farm or work. Another thing is that the tiger is endangered, so if it is endangered, something can go wrong in the act even the tiger's life. It is endangered so it must be taken care of and help in its reproduction rather than making it work dangerously on it.
    Also, I think he is the only animal among these three for whom his work is not suitable; Because humans managed to tame it and use it in circus shows. But cattle and sheep dog are not predators and cannot be used in circus shows. I only saw these two differences

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because I think we see the tiger with full satisfaction enter the episode! Everyone applauds him happy but!! Can the tiger be creative in that movement without being beaten and punished in training to reach that dazzling image?? So the tiger is the most violating animal of animal rights, while the rest of the animals in the pictures were not subjected to the same training, but less so for the tiger..

  • British Council.jpg objective_seal | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    14 Apr 2022

    I believe that animals, no matter how predatory, but there are measures to prey on them, or in a more correct sense for the work they do, that is, the danger here is for the tiger to play dangerously, and this causes his death if he falls from the top of these games. It is also known that the tigers and lions are rare animals in the world. Life is only a few, and they are animals that are subject to extinction. That is, if the situation continues and they introduce animals into the areas of dangerous games, lions and tigers can become extinct after a short period of time. In this case, people deal with animals as human beings like them, who entertain them and violate the rights of animals

  • British Council.jpg genuine_memory | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    14 Apr 2022

    The strange thing is the picture No. (2) that I chose because the animals are used for work, not for playing with them and for entertainment. The other pictures are used for entertainment and can be played with them like tigers are used in festivals and entertainment for people and dogs. You can play and entertain with them by throwing them a cylinder until they catch up with them and bring them, and this is entertainment and play .

    The stranger is the tiger
    First, he excelled in his work. In the second picture, this is the usual work of plowing the land. Also in the third picture this is the work of the dog guarding the sheep but it is not usual for the tiger to work in the circus.
    Secondly, he was honored for his work with "applause and cheers from the audience, as well as the audience to watch his performances." As for the other photos, it didn't get any rating on mere.
    Third in the image of the tiger here cooperates with the other animal.

    15 Apr 2022

    The stranger is the dog
    First, because he does his work himself without anyone's help. In the first picture, the tiger is helped by a human, and the second picture is a whole team working with each other.
    Second: The dog has complete freedom as it is not tied to anything as in the second picture where the cows were tied with ropes and wood and were not surrounded by anything either as in the first picture where the tiger was surrounded by a high fence. .
    Third: The dog works for the animal, he guards the sheep, while the cow works for the man and plows the land for him, and the tiger also works for the people by their amusement.

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because it is the only one with people around it and which has a lot of company also. The other one is they are working together and are in grassy, rural areas when the tiger is probably in a circus located in someplace urban. Someone is holding up the hoop for the tiger to go through. This means that it has help and support by any means.

    The stranger is the tiger
    Because man took the tiger out of its natural environment when it was young and deprived it of its mother, to train it in games that contradict its nature in order to enjoy itself and for a financial return. The person does not need the animal’s help for him to entertain himself and earn money, and the anger of the tiger leads to out of control, which makes him attack his trainer and the public and harm them and may kill them.

    I chose the picture of cows Picture (2): because the cow gives us milk that we use in many fields, whatever it is in industry or others, meaning that cows are a very important source of food. The strange thing in the picture is: (These cows carry heavy loads on their back, which leads to their death. A loss for the human being because he is the first beneficiary of her milk. In the picture, instead of caring for the cows so that they produce milk and benefit the person, they make them work and get tired, which leads to their death.)

    The tiger is the odd one out because;
    1)Tigers live or can survive their whole life in very cold places than dogs and cows. Specifically, white tigers are found in the coldest parts of China and India. If a cow is to sleep in cold conditions it is easier for it to contract respiratory diseases such as pneumonia while dogs will contract Kennel cough, Frostbite, and even Hypothermia.
    2)Tigers are much more aggressive than dogs and cows. By this, I mean that tigers are meant for the wilderness while dogs and cows should be domesticated and are not of any harm if we don't flock to them.

They have been using them for the transfer of purposes and pregnancies and making them go to distances and long and long distances, this leads to violation The right of the animal leads to the tired of the poor column, impregnation and gastrointestinal apparatus and also do not give them freedom like the rest of the animals ..

    I think that the strange thing is tiger , and that is for several reasons that the tiger is a predatory animal. I am very curious to know how to tame it and teach it these acrobatics?! Aren't they afraid that he will pounce on them at once?! , It's terrifying, also everyone knows that predators are harmful to humans, but I liked how they thought of making it the opposite.

    I chose the image of the tiger because this poor tiger is one of the dangerous meat-eating animals. The rest of the animals are pets and he must live freely in his environment in which he lives, and because in this picture he works by force to entertain the people watching in the circus and because he is constantly exposed to danger because of the games he is trained in. Because of the games that are played, he can be injured while playing or training for the game, and he can get serious injuries and can lead to death, and also can endanger viewers, and also these types of tigers are endangered because of tiger hunters in the world.

    In my point of view, I can see something stupendous in every single picture of the above. First, the tiger and what makes it strange that although the tiger is a wild dangerous animal, but it has been trained to be in a crowd performing some spectacular actions by its talents and intelligence making all people surprised, cheered and excited bringing people's care to it, so we can give the tiger the accolade of “The Social Animal”. Second, the oxen and what makes them odd is their work as a team in a very serious way to finish their chore perfectly, so we can call them “The Hardworking Animals”. Last but not least, the dog which is leading a herd made of big number of sheep,and what makes it more strange that an animal is protecting and leading a different specie animal, so we can name the dog as “The Leader Animal”.

    I have chosen this one because The animals in the other pictures are almost necessary, it is natural what they do, even dogs and cattle, they are created for this, and this thing is familiar to them, and available to all people, that is kinda fair, isn't it? And they are strong enough and their physique allows them to do so. As for the tiger, it is the result of human recklessness and useless amusement that leads to the killing of the tiger and other rare animals!!

    The strange picture is the picture of the tiger. We all know that the animals used in the circus are bears and elephants, but I have never seen a tiger in the circus. We know that the matter is developing, but I think that it is not fair to use predators in the The circus and I also think that there is in this picture the white tiger, which is an endangered animal, and I think it is difficult to deal with it.

    My odd one out is The sheepdog
    I have chosen this one because It is inconceivable that there is a dog with a large group of sheep. I was very shocked by this picture because the sheep will be afraid of the dog and vice versa. I have never seen such a picture before because it is very strange, and I would have watched their fear of each other a lot. This is my opinion, thanks. And I hope you like it.

    I think that the stranger is the tiger because it is a predator and a very dangerous animal for everyone, especially since people like to see dangerous animals playing, and tigers can betray their owners.
    When the tiger works for entertainment, it poses a threat to the lives of the audience and viewers, as happened in China in the city of Yuanyang on the sixth of September, where the show was exciting and amazing at first, but the surprise was when the show turned into chaos after the tiger climbed the iron cage and escaped from the audience who were children On a school trip, which led to a state of terror among the children, but fortunately the tiger did not go to any of them and kept searching for freedom.

    I choose the tiger to be the odd, since it's the only one performing for entertainment while the sheepdog and the cattle are working for a sake, there's a benefit behind. Even if they're putting an effort but because of cattles we're able to plant and grow crops, because of the sheepdog the sheep are being protected to offer us meat and wool unlike the tiger that's doing nonsense.

    Which of the pictures below is weird? I chose the tiger Svyatlanalaza; Because it is he who contains something that the other two do not have. It is “entertainment” in circus shows. The other two [sheepdogs, cows] work for no less important reasons, such as farming and guarding, and they are not predators and cannot be used in circus shows. The biggest and most important reason is: that the tiger works for entertainment and there is a crowd cheering for the tiger Svyatlanaza The other two work for the good of humans, they are very important but no crowd cares or congratulates them even though one of the characteristics of dogs is loyalty to their owners!
    The tiger is used for "entertainment" in circus shows and is endangered, so it must be taken care of and help in its reproduction rather than making it work dangerously on it. This is a dangerous business for animals, they have feelings that we must appreciate.

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because the tiger is having to do it’s work just for the entertainment of us people whereas the others are working for more essential reasons as the dog bearding the sheep to make none of them are going missing and in the second picture it looks as if they are carrying wood for paper which is much more important for humans than just our own entertainment. When you see circus’s sometimes these animals have to jump through a hoop with fire and that can be really dangerous as they can lose their life if they don’t get it perfect.

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because in this picture the tiger is working for others and presenting his acting to others which is not his job while in other pictures animals are doing their own jobs. Another difference is that the tiger is being helped to perform while the rest of the animals are working on their own hard. Another difference is that the tiger is alone and has no companion, whereas in the B and C pictures the animals are not alone but with their friends.

    My odd one out is The sheepdog
    I have chosen this one because It's different from others in the way that in other two pictures the animals are laboured but in the third one the dog is free, it's free to do anything or to go anywhere and is happy too.

    I think that the first picture is the odd picture that includes the white tiger, which is considered one of the rare species of tigers due to a genetic defect. It is threatened with extinction and should not be used in circuses and be forced to perform acrobatic movements to impress the audience.Rather, he must be taken care in areas designated for him and remove the danger from his life, other than that it is not a pet and unable to help humans like cows and dogs

    Of course I chose (Tiger)!
    This is strange for me because it is not easy to play with an animal that is one of the most dangerous and fiercest animals!
    It is also strange that how he was trained to do all these skills with “human” ..!
    And if you notice that the tiger does not have a “dangerous” reaction, but rather that it simply has its mouth closed and enters the ring as if it is a human friend and plays with it!!

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because only picture A (tiger) is used for a circus or rather only picture A shows or serves the purpose of entertainment for man, the cattle is used for farming and the dog for hunting. Unlike the herd of cattle that may be whipped by its owner if they do not work as expected, the tiger is all alone in the company of many people as audience receiving applauds for an trick it does. I also feel that having a tiger in the midst of people not restrained is also putting the lives of other people in danger. Unlike the cattle and dog which are in their natural environment the tiger is held captive and is abused by its owner for the purpose of entertainment when it is supposed to be in the wild which is its natural habitat to survive/feed on its natural prey.

    My odd one out is The tiger
    I have chosen this one because Picture A(a tiger) is a wild animal and should be left in the wild with its kind or in a game reserve. Unlike picture A(tiger), picture B( herd of cattle for farming) and picture C (a dog for hunting) are all domestic animals and are friendly to man. For a tiger to stay at home that is outside the wild, it will be subjected to torture and abuse by its owner just to suit the purpose of entertainment.

      Interesting point intelligent_butterfly. Despite cows and dogs being considered domestic animals, do you think they would survive if left in the wild?

    My odd one out is The Tiger
    I have chosen this one because a tiger isn’t supposed to show tricks in circus for entertainment purpose. A normal life for a tiger is in jungle running behind prey as a predator. Anything without that is odd; the tiger between bars of zoo or as pet or for research purpose or hunted for skin or other organs or going through circles of circus, are odd.
    Number of both forest land and species count are tremendously decreasing where the most shameful reason is Personal Benefit. Maybe the job is mere, the profit is temporary, but the result is Permanent, a life. From hunting for skin or organ to training for a work are the reason that maybe one day our future generation will find Tigers in museum, not forest.

    My odd one out is The cattle
    I have chosen this one because I have chosen this because the cattle are the only animals in the group that are herbivores that is to say that they feed or graze on grass. While the tiger and dog are carnivorous in nature as they can feed on flesh.

    My odd one out is The sheepdog
    I have chosen this one because I have chosen the sheep dog because it does a lot of work for a farmer, like guiding sheep in the fields while they are grazing in addition to watching and protecting them just like a shepherd would. Unlike the tiger that will also endanger the lives of the sheep and the cattle that can not defend itself from predators.

    I think that the odd one out is the cows because it eats grass and the other two eat meats and other fresh meat products

    The odd one out is the tiger. This is as the oxen and the sheep dog are being used for agriculture. These two are necessary to farm which the produce is used for people to eat or wool for clothes. The tiger is used for entertainment purposes rather than something that benefits a person. Cows and dogs are domesticated animals while tigers are wild animals that shouldn't be domesticated. While under the care of humans being used for work, dogs and cows can reproduce easily while tigers cannot as they are being used for entertainment themselves.

    I will talk specifically about the picture and will not associate it with the rest of the pictures. I chose the tiger because it is strange for a tiger to be so intelligent, and it is a predatory animal that they bring for entertainment...... this is strange..... it could be a person in a tiger suit... ... From my point of view because the Creator did not give animals a mind, how can an animal understand that

    I think the odd one out is the tiger,
    I have chosen this because if you take a look at the other two pictures it shows that the animals are working together so in a team but for the tiger it was alone and the second thing that shows that the tiger is the odd one out is that the tiger is the only one doing entertaining and is the only one doing acts and the others are just doing farming and another thing is that a tiger is a endangered animal unlike the other two.And the last biggest reason that the tiger is the odd one out is that because the tiger is in a circus there are people cheering for it and there are people helping the tiger do the acts but unlike the other two there is no huge crowds or cheering for them.

    I chose the image of dogs because this thing has positive and negative actions, and also dogs can protect sheep from enemies, and also his life may be in danger from hunters. They may have made ambush for the dog and killed it. Also, there is a beautiful characteristic of this dog, which is sensing danger and staying away from it, and our motto is together for animal rights

    The strange thing is the tiger because it does nothing of it. It is for entertainment only. It is used in the circus to impress the viewers, and they use it in the zoo as well to impress those who come to the zoo. Forests and the predation of other animals. As for the cows that are used for plowing, this does not mean that it is a great injustice, because the plowing is done once or twice a year and the dog has many benefits, for example, grazing sheep and pedestrians and protecting them from wolves is beneficial and also is not oppressed because it is divorced and not imprisoned.

    I think that the stranger is the picture number 1, which is the image of the tiger, because the tiger is a predatory animal, and how man was able to communicate with it and tame it according to its aggressive nature, but in a way that is not harmful to the viewing audience.

    My odd one out is the tiger. I choose the tiger because it is the animal that is not in its rightful surroundings whilst the cows and the dog are in a place where they are meant to be.A tiger can be tortured just for entertainment and they get electrocuted just for proper entertainment. I don't think it's fair for the tiger to get electrocuted just to do something. A tiger has a right to make its own decisions too!!!
