Remember the various sorting exercises you did in kindergarten to learn differentiation? Maybe you have five round items and one cube.

You learned “differentiation” by sorting the items into groups and determining which item did not belong.

Carry those same skills into your logic and understanding today.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP) recently released their 2009 list of the 11 most endangered historic places. Ten items belong in this group.

One does not. See if you can figure out which should be thrown out. (List adapted for brevity from preservationnation.org.)

Ames Shovel Shops, Easton, Mass.; Cast-Iron Architecture of Galveston, Texas; Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, Calif.; Dorchester Academy, Midway, Ga.; Human Services Center, Yankton, S.D.; L’na’i City, Hawaii; the Manhattan Project’s Enola Gay Hangar, Wendover Airfield, Utah; Memorial Bridge, Portsmouth, N.H. to Kittery, Maine; Miami Marine Stadium, Virginia Key, Fla.; Mount Taylor, near Grants, N.M.; Unity Temple, Oak Park, Ill.

What do you see as the common denominator of 10 of these 11 options?
