All of us took countless vocabulary tests and quizzes as school students. After all, vocabulary is the foundation of language itself! Unfortunately, as we age, we stop being taught new vocabulary. It's very easy to forget the meaning of words we learned several years ago and don't use frequently.
We have to make a conscious effort to keep our vocabulary sharp. Some of us do this through reading many books and articles. Some of us are masters at googling any new word we come across. And some of us...well, let's just say our vocabulary could use a bit of improvement.
Where do your stand on the spectrum? Are you a vocabulary master or would you get schooled by a 5th grader? Do words like 'exacerbate,' 'heterogenous,' 'plethora,' 'ubiquitous,' 'affidavit,' or 'advocate' sound familiar? Do you know the difference between the words 'principal' and 'principle'? How about 'capital' and 'capitol'?
It's time to put your skills to the test! This quiz will test your vocabulary knowledge against that of a typical 5th grader. You might just find yourself surprised by the difficulty of this quiz. Take your best shot at this quiz now to see if you can pass. Good luck!Start quiz
