• NEW WORD FORMATION

    In this type of questions, you are required to form meaningful word(s) using the specified letters of a keyword using each letter only once. Here a key word is given and some letters of that word are singled out. With the help of those letters you are required to form a new meaningful word and then, point out the required letter of the word so formed. These questions thus test your vocabulary. Generally, simple and common words are asked and, therefore, you can solve these questions easily. However, sufficient practice is necessary to save time.Now consider the following examples:

    Ex 47: If it is possible to make only one meaningful word with the Second, the five, and the eight letters of the word “CARETAKER”, which of the following will be the first letter of that word? If more than one such word can be made, give ‘M’ as the answer and if no such word can be made, give ‘X’ as the answer.

    (1) I       (2) N       (3) T       (4) M       (5) X

    Ex 48: If it is possible to make only one meaningful word with the second, the fifth, and the eight and tenth letters of the word “SPONTANEOUS”, which of the following will be the first letter of that word?

    Ex 49: If it is possible to make a meaningful word with the fourth, the seventh, the eleventh and the thirteen letters of the word CATEGORISATION, which of the following will be the second letter of that word?
