In the example below I Select all Lists that do not contain an even
number. If you want all Lists that contain a string that meets some
condition that  is a different matter.

lst={{1},{5},{a},{2},{7},{4},{b},{2/3},{2.3},{2},{3}}; Select[lst,
Not[EvenQ@@#]& ]


@@ is short hand for Apply.
(EvenQ@@expr) takes the Head off of expr and replaces it with EvenQ and 
finishes evaluation from there.
