Insert a Letter 2

Which letter will you choose?

Insert a Letter 2

See if you can make four words by inserting a letter into each.

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. An example has been done for you below, so take a look at this now before starting the quiz.

  1. Choose the correct missing letter
    sno (?) ile gra (?) ell
    By inserting “b” you can make the four words snob, bile, grab and bell. Don't be tempted to use "t" or you will end up with snot, tile, grat and tell. There is no such word as grat, and as for the first word, well how horrible!

    saw (?) ewt thi (?) ips
    By inserting “n” you can make the four words sawn, newt, thin and nips. A newt is a small amphibian, a bit like a frog
