She has a lot of clothes - I wonder where she keeps them?

Missing Word 2

Find the missing word, add it and make a complete word.

Take a look at the questions in this 11-plus verbal reasonsing quiz. 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.

In these kinds of questions it's sometimes a good idea to quickly eliminate any obviously incorrect answers. However, when you are left with only one (which should be the correct answer), double-check it is correct because if you made a mistake, it will be wrong. It's always (always!) worth checking that your answer checks out!

An example has been done for you. Enjoy Missing Word quiz 2.
