#### Worksheet Overview

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.

Here is the alphabet for you to use as a reference:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Look at the following letter sequence:

US is to QO as MK is to ___?

First, we have to work out how the first letter of the first pair (US) gets to the first letter of the second pair (QO).

To get from U to Q, we jump 4 places to the left.

Then we have to work out how the second letter of the first pair gets to the second letter of the second pair.

To get from S to O we also jump 4 places to the left.

This means we need to do the same to the letters M and K to work out the missing letters in our sequence.

This makes our missing letters IG.

US is to QO as MK is to IG.

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