Selecting Words constitute an essential
part of the verbal ability section as they help in testing the basic
grammatical skills of an individual, especially the correct word usage. They are simply fill in the
blanks with appropriate words. But filling these blanks requires
adequate understanding of the grammar rules and concepts and thereby,
appropriate application of various parts of speech such as nouns,
pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions and conjunctions.

also have a good understanding of articles, idioms and tenses that
play an important part in the formation of a sentence and this can be
achieved only through constant practice.
