Many Govt. Job Exam aspirants consider vocabulary improvement to be a task that is limited to learning the meaning of a word. Some aspirants go a step further and memorize the synonyms and antonyms of the words they have learnt. However, this isn’t enough as the exam has questions based on verbal usage, where one must know how to use words and frame meaningful sentences.
Keeping this in mind the experts from Vidya Guru, widely regarded as one of the Best SSC Coaching Institutes in Delhi NCR, consistently publish on Youtube Video Lectures that focus on both word meanings and verbal usage. In fact, Vocabulary Quizzes that supplement these lectures are also made available on this portal. The latest among these quizzes has been given below for your careful perusal.
