Related words are about finding a match by using the alphabet.
You need to work out a different code for each question. Sometimes you will have to find a match for a word by moving forward a number of spaces in the alphabet, and sometimes by moving backward. Count how many spaces there are between a code and its decoded word, and then carry out that same operation on your question. If you enjoyed the last 11-plus verbal reasoning Related Words quiz, you probably noticed a double code letter for a single word letter. I wonder what surprises this quiz will have?
Henry Ford, the first person to mass-produce cars, said, "One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do." We hope you find these quizzes just like that!

The key to this code is to work out that each code letter is two spaces back in the alphabet. If L = J, then the code letter (J) has moved two spaces to the left of L, likewise if U = S then the code letter (S) is two spaces to the left of U. Working out the key allows us to work out any letter. If E is the code letter, then we know that it's two spaces to the left, so to get the answer, we must move two spaces to the right (G), likewise for M we must move two spaces to the right (O) and so on. Easy!
