Over and Under

These brain teasers rely on your ability to recognize groups of common attributes. For each of these puzzles you'll need to figure out why the words or letters are grouped as they are. Sometimes you will be asked to pick the odd-one-out or to place a new word into the correct group.

Carl the typesetter has a problem. He has been given the simple task of printing twenty words and a line. Ten of the words are to be printed OVER the line and the other ten words are to be printed UNDER the line. The problem is that Carl has mixed the words together, and can't remember which words go where. He does remember that each group of ten words shares a property that relates to its position. Please help Carl sort the words properly - either OVER or UNDER the line - before his editor gets back from lunch.
