Verbal Reasoning Test Practice - English Language

The whole point of English language tests it to see how well you understand English vocabulary. More often than not you will be asked to identify the odd one out in a collection of words.

As an example, take a look at the following words and decide which one doesn’t fit: Understand, Comprehend, Grasp, Confuse, Recognize

4 of these words have the same meaning.

Comprehend, grasp and recognize are all synonyms of understand. This leaves confuse as the only word which doesn’t have the same meaning as the rest of the group.

A similar question you might face is being asked to find opposites.

Imagine you’re given the word Straightforward and asked to choose which of the following has the opposite meaning:

Forthcoming Multifaceted Forthwith Ahead

There are lots of words we can use to describe the opposite of straightforward, but the only one listed is multifaceted so this is the correct answer.

So, there you have it. That’s all you need to pass your English language questions with flying colors.
