These questions test your verbal reasoning skills. This includes your testing vocabulary, a logical approach, your ability to determine patterns within words and your ability to manipulate words.
Example He was ALS well behaved.
On the answer sheet you are given five words to choose from.
Sometimes it is easy to spot the correct answer. Look at the sentence without the incomplete word. He was ?????? well behaved. Can you think of a word that will fit into the sentence, so that it makes sense?
i.e. NEVER, SOMETIMES, OCCASIONALLY, ALWAYS
Now look at the sentence again with the incomplete word.
He was ALS well behaved. WAY fits into ALS to give the word ALWAYS
So the sentence “He was ALWAYS” well behaved makes sense. The correct answer option is “D”, WAY.
Alternatively, you may need to go through all the answer options given.
A SAT Can you fit SAT into ALS to make a proper word? SAT ALS A SAT LS AL SAT S
B LAP Can you fit LAP into ALS to make a proper word? LAP ALS A LAP LS AL LAP S
C CAR Can you fit CAR into ALS to make a proper word? CAR ALS A CAR LS AL CAR S
D WAY Can you fit WAY into ALS to make a proper word? WAY ALS A WAY LS AL WAY S
WAY fits into ALS to make ALWAYS.
Check whether the sentence makes sense. He was ALWAYS well behaved.
This makes sense, so the answer must be “D”, WAY.
You do not have to check answer option “E”, because there is only one answer.
