Choose the correct word

In this type of exercise you have to choose the correct word from two or three possible answers. Follow our advice:

  • Read the sentence carefully before and after the word.
  • Think carefully about the meaning of the text.
  • Choose the words you know are right.
  • Eliminate any words that you know are wrong.
  • Some words are similar in meaning but there is a difference. Do you know the difference between say and tell? make and do? rob and steal? fun and funny?
  • Sometimes the options are wrong because the spelling is wrong.
  • If you don’t know an answer, choose a word. You may be right!
  • Check your answers carefully when you finish.
