Are you ready to count forwards in this Letter Connections quiz? There are 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. If you have been doing these verbal reasoning quizzes in order, you are on the final Letter Connections quiz. Well done! We hope that some of the questions are a challenge to you, although what you really need is the practice - doing the same type of question repeatedly gives you that necessary practice.
