PostSubject: UTME: 90+ Synonyms To Expect In JAMB Use of English   Sat Jan 16, 2016 7:46 am

Synonyms and antonyms
constitute about 10% of JAMB
Use of English Examination
Questions.
While you prepare for your
Computer Based Test (CBT), here
are a 90+ list of synonyms to
revise and help equip yourself
with the word power. We have
sourced these from
JustEnglish.me because we
know how helpful they will be.
What are Synonyms by the way?
The Collins Dictionary defined a
synonym as a word or phrase
that means exactly or nearly the
same as another word or phrase
in the same language, for
example shut is a synonym of
close.
In another contest, it can be a
person or thing so closely
associated with a particular
quality or
idea that the mention of their
name calls it to mind. For JAMB
use of English however, the first
definition is more pertinent.
