It’s not easy to get along with him. He has always been the odd man out in the our class.

Hi,

What does "out" in the bolded phrase refer to? What part of speech does it fall into? Thanks.

Hi,
my dictionary says it's used in BrE and it means someone or something that is different from the rest of the group or not included in it. It is explained under the entry the odd one/man out, so it seems it is just an idiom and not part of any particular structure.
