GRE Sentence-Equivalence Practice Questions

Here you'll find four GRE Sentence Equivalence questions, ranging from easier to more difficult than average by GRE standards.

NOTE: During the actual exam, each Verbal Reasoning section will include several Sentence Equivalence items, mixed with questions in two other basic formats.

Scroll down each page for an explanatory answer to the question at hand. The link to Directions returns you to this page. This is not a timed test. But if you want to simulate GRE testing conditions, limit yourself to 1 minute per question, on average.


Select the two answer choices that, when used to fill in the blank, fit the sentence's overall meaning and produce two sentences that are alike in meaning.
