Similar/contradictory questions on the Wonderlic test.

 

Similar/contradictory questions on the Wonderlic test are very common and a frequently filled with traps. Here was the first question from the free Wonderlic practice test:

u

1. The words ADOPT and ADAPT have _?_ meanings.

A. similar

B. contradictory

C. unrelated

 

Answer: C.

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.
