5th Grade: The Ultimate Quiz On Vocabulary! - Quiz

On this 'Vocabulary' quiz, you are going to get some more practice in using synonyms. A synonym is a word that has the same or almost the same meaning as another word, for example: 'slow-sluggish'; 'hot-scorching' and 'angry-furious'.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? trivial (adjective)

    • A.

      Unimportant

    • B.

      Inconsequential

    • C.

      Trifling

    • D.

      Crucial

    Correct Answer
    D. Crucial
    Explanation
    The word "crucial" is the only word in the list that is not a synonym of "trivial." While "unimportant," "inconsequential," and "trifling" all convey a similar meaning of something being insignificant or not of great importance, "crucial" means the opposite, indicating that something is extremely important or necessary. Therefore, "crucial" is the word that is not a synonym of "trivial."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? intelligent (adjective)

    • A.

      Brainless

    • B.

      Bright

    • C.

      Clever

    • D.

      Brainy

    Correct Answer
    A. Brainless
    Explanation
    The word "brainless" is the correct answer because it means lacking intelligence or showing a lack of thought or judgment, which is the opposite of "intelligent". The other three options, "bright", "clever", and "brainy", are all synonyms of "intelligent" as they all refer to having a high level of mental capacity or being quick-witted.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? lie (noun)

    • A.

      Tall tale

      Fib

    • C.

      Falsehood

    • D.

      Truth

    Correct Answer
    D. Truth
    Explanation
    The word "truth" is not a synonym of the word "lie." While "tall tale," "fib," and "falsehood" all refer to a deliberate false statement, "truth" means something that is in accordance with reality or fact. Therefore, it is the opposite of a lie and not a synonym of it.

    • D.

      Garrulous

    Correct Answer
    C. Reticent

    The word "reticent" is not a synonym of "talkative" because it means being reserved or reluctant to speak, while "talkative" means being inclined to talk or speak freely.

      Untrue

    • C.

      Valid

    • D.

      Illogical

    Correct Answer
    C. Valid
    Explanation
    The word "valid" is the only word among the given options that is not a synonym of "invalid". "Fallacious", "untrue", and "illogical" all mean the same as "invalid" - not valid or incorrect. However, "valid" means the opposite - something that is valid is true or acceptable. Therefore, "valid" is not a synonym of "invalid".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? violent (adjective)

    • A.

      Vicious

    • B.

      Pugnacious

    • C.

      Aggressive

    • D.

      Peaceful

    Correct Answer
    D. Peaceful
    Explanation
    The word "peaceful" is the only word among the given options that does not have a similar meaning to the word "violent". While "vicious", "pugnacious", and "aggressive" all convey a sense of hostility or aggression, "peaceful" suggests the absence of violence or conflict. Therefore, "peaceful" is not a synonym of "violent".

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Tedium

    • B.

      Dullness

    • C.

      Interest

    • D.

      Monotony

    Correct Answer
    C. Interest
    Explanation
    The word "interest" is the only word in the given options that is not a synonym of "boredom". While the other options - "tedium", "dullness", and "monotony" - all refer to a state of being bored or uninterested, "interest" is the opposite as it implies curiosity or engagement. Therefore, "interest" is the word that is not a synonym of "boredom".

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? concave (adjective)

    • A.

      Depressed

    • B.

      Convex

    • C.

      Sunken

    • D.

      Indented

    Correct Answer
    B. Convex
    Explanation
    The word "convex" is the correct answer because it is the only word among the options that is not a synonym of the word "concave". While "depressed", "sunken", and "indented" all convey a similar meaning of being curved inward or having a hollow shape, "convex" means the opposite, describing a surface that is curved outward. Therefore, "convex" is not a synonym of "concave".

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? decline (noun)

    • A.

      Decrease

    • B.

      Improvement

    • C.

      Deterioration

    • D.

      Degeneration

    Correct Answer
    B. Improvement
    Explanation
    The word "improvement" is not a synonym of "decline." While "decline" means a decrease or deterioration, "improvement" means the opposite - an increase or enhancement. Therefore, "improvement" does not have the same meaning as "decline" and is not a synonym of it.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which word is NOT a synonym of the word given? gracious (adjective)

    • A.

      Rude

    • B.

      Polite

    • C.

      Amiable

    • D.

      Courteous

    Correct Answer
    A. Rude
    Explanation
    The word "rude" is the only word in the given options that is not a synonym of "gracious". "Polite", "amiable", and "courteous" all convey a similar meaning of being kind, considerate, and well-mannered, which aligns with the meaning of "gracious". However, "rude" has the opposite meaning, indicating a lack of politeness or consideration.
