We're having a party in question 3!

Move a Letter 1

Move a letter to make two new words.

In these 11-plus verbal reasoning quizzes you will need to concentrate very hard, as they will test your vocabulary and your spelling.

In each question one letter from the word on the left can be moved to the word on the right, to make TWO new words. The letters must not be rearranged. Choose the correct answer from the four choices available.

One way that might help you get to grips with these questions is to have a pad and pencil by your side. Write out the first word and cross each letter out, one at a time. You will eventually come to a new word. Then see if the crossed-out letter can be added to the second word. If so, that's your answer!

An example has been done to help you. Enjoy Move a Letter quiz number 1.
