Missing Word 4

The missing word is part of a bigger word - can you find it?

This is the fourth and last of our 11-plus verbal reasoning quizzes that 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.

Only when you have achieved a perfect score of 40/40 in our four quizzes should you move onto the next series of quizzes. The more you play these quizzes, the better prepared you'll be for the 11+ exam.

An example has been done for you. Enjoy Missing Word quiz 4.
