Missing Word 1

Add the missing letters to the word in order for it to make sense.

This 11-plus verbal reasoning quiz asks you to find the missing word. The word in capitals has had THREE consecutive letters removed. Without changing the order of these letters they will make one correctly spelled word. The sentence must make sense. Find the three letter word and choose your answer from the four choices available.

Like all examples that are given in tests, exams and even quizzes, it's well worth spending a few minutes reading it carefully to ensure you know exactly what to do. You wouldn't want to blow the 11+ exam just because you forgot or couldn't be bothered reading an example. Give it your best shot and good luck!
