500 Sentence Completion Questions

1. Introduction:

Welcome to 501 Sentence Completion Questions! This book is designed to help you prepare for the verbal and reading sections of many assessment and entrance exams. By completing the 501 sample items offered here and by studying their answer explanations, you will develop the skills necessary to tackle each type of sentence completion question. You will also improve your vocabulary and your process of elimination skills.

Sentence  completions  test  your  ability  to  use  the  information found in complex, but incomplete, sentences in order to correctly complete  the  sentences.  Sentence  completions  test  two  separate aspects of your verbal skills: your vocabulary and your ability to follow the internal logic of sentences. These sentences are often quite complex.  Fortunately,  there  are  some  strategies  that  will  greatly increase your score on these questions. Each of these questions has one blank (or, on some tests, two blanks) within a single sentence. Often the sentences are long and dif?cult to follow, but with practice you can learn to master them.

Many  standardized  tests—including  high  school  and  college entrance  exams  and  civil  service  exams—use  sentence  completion questions to test vocabulary and logic. Some of the “alphabet soup” of exams that contain sentence completions are the:
-  SAT I exam
-  PSAT/NMSQT exam
-  GRE General test
-  TOEFL/TOEIC exams
You might wonder what kinds of strategies you can use to master sentence completions. When it comes to sentence completions, the word that does not appear is the key to the meaning of the sentence. The words that do appear offer clues to the missing word. If you can ?nd out how the words that appear are connected, you can ?nd the
correct answer. This means that you must know more than just the meaning of the words involved. You must also understand the logic of the sentence. Here is a sampling of strategies:

-  Read the entire sentence saying “blank” for the blank(s). This gives you an overall sense of the meaning of the sentence and helps you ?gure out how the parts of the sentence relate to each other. If an answer occurs to you before you even look at the choices, you may have a synonym for the answer or the answer itself.

-  Pay special attention to introductory and transitional words—but, although, however, yet, even though—because they are key to forming the logical structure of the sentence.

- Be sure your choice is both logical and grammatically correct.
-   If you don’t know some words, use elimination and educated guessing, which means you are able to eliminate one or more of the choices as de?nitely wrong; or guessing from context when you know a related word.
