Missing Word 3
Put the missing word back where it belongs - but make sure it makes sense!
11-plus verbal reasoning questions come in a variety of forms. These ask 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.
A handy hint to help you get full marks is to read the whole sentence carefully, rather than just looking at the capitalised word. This will help you to understand the context and could give you a very big clue to what the word is - you may even be able to work it out without looking at the four possible answers.
An example has been done for you. Enjoy Missing Word quiz 3.

Answer: HER (gatHERed)
