You have to write the correct word(s) to complete a text.

  • Read the whole text. It’s important to understand what the text is about.
  • Read the whole sentence before and after the gap.
  • Before you look at the options do you know what type of word is missing? Is it a noun? A verb? A preposition? etc.
  • Read the whole sentence with your word. Does your word make sense in the sentence?
  • Check that your word is grammatically correct in the sentence.
  • If you don’t know an answer, guess. You may be right!
  • Check your answers carefully when you finish.
  • Missing words are often auxiliary verbs, pronouns, relative pronouns, articles, quantifiers, prepositions, phrasal verbs, modals and linking words ...

Do you have to do this type of exercise in tests at school? Yes, i do. But actually not in school. I have to do them them at English class.

it's not bad: Total score is 7 out of 10 (70%) ... I like it!
the same homework we have in the school, but here is doing that more helpful than in school.

Many thanks!

Sometimes. There are 3 types of writing words to complete a text at my school.
1. They give us all the words that we need to fill in the gaps and we just put the words in the correct places.
2. They give us all the KEY words then we change them so as to make them suitable for the text then we put those words in the correct places.
3. They don't give us any words and we have to guess and write.
It seems to me that type 3 is the most difficult. I used to be very bad at this.
