In these middle school verbal reasoning questions the same letter must fit into both sets of brackets, to complete the word in front of the brackets and begin the word after the brackets.

A good way of working them out is to quickly list all the letters that will work for the first word, and then strike out any that won’t work for the second. You should only be left with one letter, which is your answer.
