Sentence completion is one of the most important tests designed to assess the vocabulary skills of candidates. In a
sentence, one or two blanks are left out to be filled with one of the alternatives given below it. Let us examine a few such
One Sentence One Blank
Although he was a hardened criminal, his one ___________ feature was his love.
(a) Saving (b) redeeming (c) recovering (d) acquiring
The answer is (b)
Disarmament and development in our time are ______________ interrelated but ______________ development will depend on a
change in the word’s political thinking.
The answer is (c)
1. The entire class was invited to ____________________ the model of the proposed new city.
There is a lovely ______________ of the town from the window.
The answer is (d)
Now, let us analyse the process of finding the correct answer. If you know the answer, you can make a flash response and
tick the choice. No technique is required at all. If you do not know the answer, you may use the key words and elimination
K stands for key; E stand for elimination. Every sentence must have an idea. A sentence is not merely a group of words but
a meaningful group of words. So there is an idea, a message behind every sentence.
Example: Ram is an honest man
Here the idea or message is the honesty of Ram. The message may be expressed or is generally expressed through a word
or words. This we may call key word/words. In this sentence the key word is honest.
The Director pointed out in favour of the Manager that the profitability of the plant had _________ since he took over.
(a) arisen (b) declined (c) developed (d) increased
Here the message or idea is profitability of the plant. The key words reflecting he idea are profitability and favour. Keeping
profitability and favour in mind, we can very easily eliminate arisen, declined and developed. Only increased remains
uneliminated. This is the answer.
At times, you can find the answer by locating the key words.
Past is to future as yesterday is to ____________
(a) today (b) tomorrow (c) day after tomorrow (d) day before yesterday
The answer is (b), ‘tomorrow’. The key word is ‘yesterday’ for which an opposite has to be found out.
Sometimes you can find the answer by the process of elimination.
A ___________ of ships was kept ready to scour the sea in case of an emergency.
(a) group (b) pack (c) battalion (d) fleet
Now we can find out the answer by eliminating different alternatives.
(a) Group can be eliminated because ‘group’ is used for human being or, at least, for living beings.
(b) Pack is used normally for playing materials. A pack of cards is a popular expression.
(c) Battalion is normally used for a group of soldiers
