The following activity is a practice exercise to help you measure your success under timed conditions. 

If you are unsure of an answer move on to the next question.  You should come back to questions you found difficult at the end if you have time.  

 

We must pick one word from each set of brackets that can be connected to the word in front of it in the same way.  

Which words from the sets of brackets would best finish this sentence?

Dog is to (lead, kennel, cat) as hamster is to (gerbil, water, cage).

 

First, we need to find a connection between dog and one of the words in brackets.

Dog is connected to lead as this is used to walk it. Dog is connected to kennel as this is where it lives, and also to cat as they are opposites.  

 

We need to see if one of these connections can be made with hamster and the words in brackets.

A hamster lives in a cage, so we have found the connection! It’s the place where these animals live.

 

Now it's time to begin this practice exercise.  Good luck!
