Complete the Word 3

Parrots are very good at one of the answers!

Complete the Word 3

Part of a word has been taken out – you need to find it to complete the word!

These quizzes help you become more skilful when working with words. A group of letters such as PIG rarely appear in the middle of another word, however the letters TIN do. Think of how many words end in TING - probably thousands!

Our previous 11-plus verbal reasoning 'Complete the Word' quizzes involved picking the right 3-letter word to insert into a capitalised word in the question, so it would make more likely sense.

This quiz offers you more of the same, for practice. Once you get all ten questions correct, move on to our last and hardest quiz in the series.
