Awesome Vocabulary Quiz by Top SSC CGL Coaching in Delhi

So, we are back with another round of vocabulary dose for all of you. The difference here would be the questions will be based on antonyms rather than synonyms as you have attempted in the last few sets. Regardless of whether you are looking for the Best IBPS PO Online Coaching Classes or SSC CGL Preparation Courses for your target exam, these questions will surely aid your learning. Primary reason for this change is that you face such questions in the actual examination. But, that is obviously not the only reason because all of you must have been aware by now that we are trying to impart learning in a manner that helps you in retention of the facts. This is called life-long learning, instead of cramming for the examination only.

So, where exactly will you need these antonyms in your real life? Mostly we use the antonyms in negative connotations in our daily usage. Apart from that, sometimes, they are used with ‘not’ to emphasize the connotation opposite to a certain word. Here, our main objective is that you learn the words that are diametrically opposite to a given word. That will complete your learning of a word i.e. you know the meaning, you know some other words that imply the same connotation as well and you also become aware of the opposite meanings of the word. Obviously, last but not the least, with our quizzes you get to learn the application of the words. Thus, it is the 360-Degree learning methodology.

Having said all these things, let us now proceed towards the quiz that we have meticulously designed for all of you. Go through it; learn the words, their synonyms and antonyms along with the application of that word. Try to think of the situations in which the opposite word may come in handy for you while writing or speaking.

We hope that it will help you in your overall learning journey.
