Another type of word meaning question uses words which sound similar but have different meanings.

These are called homophones and an example would be the words 'allude’ and ‘elude’. ‘Allude’ means ‘referred’ and ‘elude’ means ‘escaped from’.

Once again, the test designer needs to choose common homophones which are in regular use and this leaves a relatively restricted list to choose from.

The Verbal Reasoning eBook available from this website contains all of the most commonly used words for this type of test.

If you work through these test papers then you will have a list of words that you need to learn the precise meaning of.

These types of question appear in all levels of verbal ability tests.

This practice test contains 40 questions and has a suggested time limit of 10 minutes. The questions are presented in Letter/A4 format for easy printing and self-marking.
