Improving Vocabulary 2
In this second quiz on 'Improving Vocabulary', you are going to get some more practice in using synonyms. A synonym is a word that has the same or almost the same meaning as another word, for example: 'slow-sluggish'; 'hot-scorching' and 'angry-furious'.
When you play this 11-plus English quiz, you may not know the meaning of the word. Rather than guess, take a look at the four answers and see if you can find some that have the same meaning - these are likely to be incorrect answers. That way you can at least eliminate some.
By the way, it was once said by the Aragonese Jesuit and Baroque prose writer, Baltasar Gracián: “A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the other one." Do you agree?
