Insert a Letter 1

In this quiz, pick the letter to make the words.

Insert a Letter 1

To complete the words, you need to insert a letter - but which one?

In these 11-plus verbal reasoning questions the same letter must fit into both sets of brackets, to complete the word in front of the brackets and begin the word after the brackets.

A good way of working them out is to quickly list all the letters that will work for the first word, and then strike out any that won’t work for the second. You should only be left with one letter, which is your answer.

Choose the button that has that answer from the four choices available. See if you can get all ten questions correct on your first play of this quiz.
