Was about to say, it's the only one which is not definitely one thing only, being both a noun and a verb, but 'smart' is both an adjective and an intransitive verb, so that doesn't work.

This is called odd one out.

It can be about the meaning of the word or the structure of the word.

It appears in both VR and CEM so there is a huge amount of material you can purchase to revise this section. DG
