When practicing Verbal Reasoning Assessments, it is really important to be aware of the correct grammar.

Your aptitude will likely be tested by being asked to choose from a selection of grammatically poor examples.

You might be asked to identify a specific element in a sentence like punctuation, adjectives or tenses. Your job is to separate the good from the bad.

Let’s look at this example: Henry, blank, at home, I can hear his voice from the kitchen

Our options are: • has been • ought to have been • must be • won’t be

If we take a look at our statement we can see it says “I can hear his voice”. Can hear is present tense. Going back to our options the only one using present tense is “must be”

Therefore, the answer is: Henry must be at home, I can hear his voice from the kitchen.

When answering questions like this one, make sure you read the given statement properly. If you aren’t sure which is right, try reading the statement with the different options in the blank space.

Does it sound right?

If so, you’ve got this!
