These synonym questions are similar to antonym questions in that often you either know them or you don't as ultimately they are a test of vocabulary however like antonym questions when you have to make a guess there are ways to improve your chances of getting a question correct in synonym questions we are asked to select the word that is most similar in meaning to another word for example what if we are asked to find the word that is most similar to tenacious and the options are yielding feeble weak persistent or charged so if you get a question like this you might not know what tenacious means so we need to make the best possible guess the first thing to do is look down the answer list we have been asked to select the one word that is most similar to tenacious this means that if any words within the answer options mean the same we can rule them out so looking at the second and third choices weak and feeble we know that those two are quite similar in meaning so we can cross them off the potential answer list the other thing that you should immediately be looking out for is what type of word is in the question in this case tenacious is an adjective and charge can either be a noun for example the charge on my credit card or a verb for example the mechanic charges 10 pounds per hour given that charge is never an adjective we can rule that answer choice out as well we are now left with two choices yielding and persistent even though you might not know which one is correct at least we're now down to a 50/50 chance of getting it right rather than one in five in this case the answer is persistent often you won't be able to narrow it down to one answer however you may be able to rule out at least some of them firstly try to spot similar meanings in the answer choices as we are asked to find one answer from the five the correct answer can't be one of two words that mean the same secondly look to see us some of the answer choices are not the same type of word as in the question if the question word is a noun then you should be looking for a noun in the answer and rule out any ones that are different types of words for example any adjectives or verbs just be careful and considering the second point as don't forget that some words can be more than one type of word for instance a word like paint can be both a noun and a verb so take care when eliminating possible answers on this basis doing this will mean that rather than taking a guess from all five answers you might be able to guess from three or even two which increases your chances
