You Have Some Improvement To Do
You may be tired and unfocused, or it could be that's it's been too long since you sat down and read a good book! Our vocabulary doesn't last forever, and if we don't start reading things that use a larger variety of words we may never regain it. Please have a look at the answers to see where you went wrong, and perhaps challenge yourself with some of our other English quizzes.
Not Too Shabby
You didn't pass with flying colors but you still remember quite a bit of these rare words mostly readers know. You probably knew a lot more previously but have forgotten with time. Perhaps you haven't read a full book in a while. Well, we certainly recommend reading more, as a good vocabulary is a terrible thing to waste. Check out the answers to learn some more.
Good Job!
You did really well for yourself! You obviously have a good vocabulary and know how to use it to your advantage. Perhaps you still read books (unlike most people) and don't mind going to the dictionary to learn those words you don't know yet. That is the best way of enriching our vocabulary and our language. Check out the answers to learn from the mistakes you did make.
You ACED This Quiz!
Your lexicon is extraordinary. You're obviously a verbal person, or one who is an avid reader of books. Only by reading do we get such a wonderful and wide vocabulary. We hope you always continue enriching your language. In an age when people can barely write text messages, people like you are in short supply indeed. Way to go!
