The Scholastic Aptitude Test, that hurdle which every college-bound senior must face, is composed of two sections, math and language skills. While many students tend to prefer math, and perform better on that section, it's often vocabulary that will remain more essential in our day-to-day lives, determining whether we ace job interviews or just impress the people we meet.
For this reason, if your vocabulary has never been your strong suit, it's in your best interest to strengthen those skills. Maybe it's time to learn the difference between "extant" and "extent" (the first means "still in existence" and the second, "a range or limit.") You should also note that "noisome" does not mean "loud," but rather "dirty" or "objectionable." It's time to learn the true meaning of "lucid," "genial" and "defunct." And "liberal" and "conservative" have meanings that precede politics. Do you know what they are?
If you're ready to fill the lacunae (gaps) in your vocabulary, or show off your puissance (power) in this area, then we've got a quiz for you!
