Tips for Synonyms and Antonyms
- Try to put the word in a sentence or a phrase and guess its meaning
- When you have a word try to guess all its synonyms and from the answers see the exact word which has the same meaning, in the case of antonym the opposite meaning
- Read all the options, most of us think of the time and come up with the answer which has a close match to the word. But there is an actual word with the same meaning hidden there.
- First, know the part of the speech the word is used in… For example, the word run can be used as a verb but it could also be used as a noun like ‘home run’ so make sure you know the part of speech before answering.
