Insert a Letter 3

Look carefully at the words and choose the correct letter.

Insert a Letter 3

In this 11-plus verbal reasoning quiz, you must insert the letter that fits all four words.

In these 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. It is a good idea to write out the alphabet and keep it beside you as you work your way through these quizzes. That way you can try each letter without having to say the alphabet each time.

An example has been done for you below.
