    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>DO is the only one with less than 3 letters,
    NONE is the only one with 2 vowels</font color=yellow></span hi>

    True, Steve, but not the answer I'm after.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>POM</font color=yellow></span hi> is not, to the best of my knowledge, a word in British English.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>NONE it is the only one that does not form a word (though this one does form a chemical compound so I'm not completely sure) when "doubled"</font color=yellow></span hi>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>You have got the pattern but not applied it correctly to the list. I'm counting the compound's name as a valid word.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Re: Another Odd One Out

    For the purpose of this puzzle, I've allowed <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Aussie slang </font color=yellow></span hi> as acceptable, so you'll need to try again, Stuart.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>That's the answer, Stuart.

    Tip is the only word from the list that cannot be doubled up to make another valid word. </font color=yellow></span hi>
