An alphabet is crucial to find these letter connections - but don't worry, we have added one on every question to help you. In these middle school verbal reasoning quizzes you will be given three pairs of letters. You have to find the relationship between the first two pairs to work out the fourth pair. The first letters of both pairs are related, and the second letters of both pairs are related. No other relationship will be in the question. In this quiz we have hidden a number of extra puzzles, where you find the answer by answering a later question. We think some of the facts these puzzles have will interest you, and keep you working till the end of the quiz.
