The following is an explanation for QUESTION 1 from our Free Wonderlic Practice Test.
1. The words ADOPT and ADAPT have __?__ meanings.
The words in problem one are not related, even though they start with the same letters and are spelled similarly.
ADOPT: take up or start to use or follow (an idea, method, or course of action); legally take another's child and bring it up as one's own.
ADAPT: become adjusted to new conditions.
Expect this to be the case on some of the Wonderlic questions you will see on your exam.
This is just one of many traps the Wonderlic will set to try to trick you into answering incorrectly.
You will learn how to identify and avoid every trap on the Wonderlic as well as how to answer similar/contradictory questions correctly even if you don't know what either word means in my Complete Wonderlic Online Course, which will fully prepare you for your exam in 3 hours.
