Worksheet Overview

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. 



The thief has stolen four letters from a word but they have left a clue behind to help us figure out what the word is.


The four letters make a real word themselves.


The clue is a synonym, which is a word with a very similar meaning.


Let’s have a look at the partial word:


Synonym Partial Word
 Investigate  EXA


The word has had four of its letters removed.


What could these letters be and where have they been removed from?



The stolen letters make the word MINE and the word is EXAMINE.




Now it’s time to begin this practice exercise. 

Good luck!
