WORD PUZZLES

Each of the 12 sets of words below has a common demoninator, some unusual factor that is shared by the six words in the set. You must determine what that factor is and pick which of the three following words fits the same pattern. For example, given, sexes, mom, deified, level, pop and redder with choices divined, rotator, and starts, you'd pick rotator. All the words are spelled the same forward and backward.

 

Good luck!!
