The SAT is comprised of various sections, including math, reading, writing and an essay portion. For the writing and language section, you'll come face to face with a variety of difficult vocabulary words that you'll have to guess the definition of. To help prepare you for the SAT, we've come up with 35 questions to put your English language knowledge to the test!
Some questions in this quiz will ask you to name the synonym of the word. For example, what do you think the word "idyllic" is synonymous with? Is it happy, sad, stubborn or angry? The answer is happy, since "idyllic" means to feel wonderful or joyous in a particular situation. Another example would be "histrionic." While the word looks like it may pertain to history, it actually means that someone is being overly dramatic in nature. For example, "My sister is always so histrionic in personality."
Let's take a look at one more example. If I say "That new kid is pretty genial," what do you think that means? Is it friendly, depressed, stubborn or lazy? The answer is friendly, since "genial" means to have a warm and kind personality.
