    The correct answer is "BIGA" because when the letters in each row are rearranged in alphabetical order, "BIGA" is the only option that follows this pattern. In the first row, "ABEM" rearranges to "ABEM." In the second row, "EOPS" rearranges to "EOPS." In the third row, "AAIKLNBR" rearranges to "ABIKLNAR." Therefore, "BIGA" is the only option that matches the pattern.

      TABIKE

    • C.

      KOSTILYAHE

    Correct Answer
    B. TABIKE
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "TABIKE" because it is the only word in the given list that is related to construction or building. "SIDING (EXTERNAL)" suggests that the words are related to the exterior of a building, and "TABIKE" is a plausible construction material or technique. "SENEPA" and "KOSTILYAHE" do not have any obvious connection to construction, making them less likely to be the correct answer.

    The correct answer is "PILARETE" because when we read the letters vertically, starting from the top and going down, the letters spell out the word "PILARETE".

      PABALAGBAG

    • B.

      KOSTILYAHE

    • C.

      PILARETE

    Correct Answer
    A. PABALAGBAG
    Explanation
    The answer "PABALAGBAG" is the only word in the given options that can be read horizontally in the given arrangement of letters. The other two words, "KOSTILYAHE" and "PILARETE", cannot be formed by reading the letters horizontally. Therefore, "PABALAGBAG" is the correct answer.

      PASAMANO

    • C.

      SUMBRERO

    Correct Answer
    B. PASAMANO
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "PASAMANO" because it is the only option that is related to a window sill. "PASAMANO" is a Spanish word that refers to a handrail or banister, which is often found on a staircase or balcony. It is commonly used to provide support and safety while ascending or descending stairs, and it can also be installed along the edge of a window sill to prevent falls. The other options, "PILARETE" (pillar), "SUMBRERO" (hat), and "WINDOW SILL" are not directly related to the concept of a handrail or banister.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      PASAMANO

    Correct Answer
    A. SUMBRERO
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "SUMBRERO" because all the other words in the list are related to windows or architecture, while "SUMBRERO" stands out as it is a Spanish word for a type of hat.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    COLLAR PLATE

    • A.

      PABALAGBAG

    • B.

      SINTURON

    • C.

      KOSTILYAHE

    Correct Answer
    B. SINTURON
    Explanation
    The given words "COLLAR PLATE" and "PABALAGBAG" do not seem to have any clear connection or meaning. However, "SINTURON" is a Spanish word that translates to "belt" in English. This word is related to the concept of a belt, which is commonly worn around the waist. Therefore, "SINTURON" is the most appropriate answer as it is the only word that relates to the concept of a belt, which is similar to a collar plate.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    WINDOW JAMB / DOOR JAMB

    • A.

      SINTURON

    • A.

      MADRE (de escalera)

    • B.

      SINTURON

    • C.

      HARDINERA

    Correct Answer
    C. HARDINERA
    Explanation
    The given words appear to be in a list format, with each word being on a separate line. The word "STRINGER" is written in uppercase, suggesting that it may be a category or a heading. The words "MADRE," "SINTURON," and "HARDINERA" are written in lowercase and are listed below "STRINGER." Since "HARDINERA" is the last word in the list, it is likely the correct answer. However, without any additional context or information, it is difficult to determine the exact relationship or pattern between these words.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    STRINGER (CLOSED)

    • A.

      MADRE (de escalera)

    • B.

      HARDINERA

    • C.

      PILARETE

    Correct Answer
    A. MADRE (de escalera)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "MADRE (de escalera)" because "de escalera" is a Spanish phrase that means "of the stairs" or "staircase." In this context, "MADRE" refers to the main or central support beam of a staircase. Therefore, "MADRE (de escalera)" is the most appropriate term for the given list of words, as it specifically relates to a component of a staircase.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    TREAD

    • A.

      BAYTANG

    • B.

      TAKIP (SILIPAN)

    • C.

      MULDURA

    Correct Answer
    A. BAYTANG
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "BAYTANG" because it is the only word in the given options that is related to the word "TREAD". "TREAD" means to step or walk on something, and "BAYTANG" means a step or a stair. The other options do not have a direct or obvious connection to the word "TREAD".

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    RISER

    • A.

      HARDINERA

    • B.

      BAYTANG

    • C.

      TAKIP (SILIPAN)

    Correct Answer
    C. TAKIP (SILIPAN)
    Explanation
    The given words RISER, HARDINERA, BAYTANG, and TAKIP (SILIPAN) are all Filipino words. RISER means "to rise" or "to elevate," HARDINERA refers to a type of Filipino meatloaf, BAYTANG means "step" or "stair," and TAKIP (SILIPAN) means "cover" or "lid" (specifically for a small opening). Among these words, TAKIP (SILIPAN) is the only one that specifically refers to a cover or lid, making it the odd one out in terms of meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    HANDRAIL

    • A.

      MULDURA

    • B.

      GABAY

    • C.

      MADRE (de escalera)

    Correct Answer
    B. GABAY
    Explanation
    In this question, the words "HANDRAIL" and "MADRE (de escalera)" are related to the concept of a staircase. "HANDRAIL" refers to the railing that is typically found alongside a staircase for support and safety. Similarly, "MADRE (de escalera)" is a Spanish term that translates to "mother (of the staircase)" and is also used to refer to the main supporting beam or structure of a staircase. Therefore, the correct answer "GABAY" is likely to be another term or word related to a staircase or its structure.

      REOSTRA

    Correct Answer
    B. SIBE

      PASAMANO

    • C.

      PILARETE

    Correct Answer
    A. MULDURA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "MULDURA" because it is the only word that is related to "MOULDING". MULDURA is a term used in construction and architecture to refer to a decorative molding or trim that is often used to enhance the appearance of walls, ceilings, or furniture. The other options, PASAMANO and PILARETE, do not have a direct association with molding or construction.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    PROJECTION

    • A.

      PASAMANO

    • B.

      KOSTILYAHE

    • C.

      BOLADA

    Correct Answer
    C. BOLADA
    Explanation
    Among the given words, "BOLADA" is the only one that does not have any connection or similarity with the word "PROJECTION". "PASAMANO" is a Spanish word meaning "handrail", "KOSTILYAHE" is not a recognized word, and "BOLADA" does not have any clear meaning or connection to "PROJECTION". Therefore, "BOLADA" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      BALANGKAS

    • C.

      SULERAS

    Correct Answer
    B. BALANGKAS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "BALANGKAS" because it is the only word in the given list that can be associated with the term "FRAMEWORK". "Bolada" and "Suleras" do not have any direct connection or meaning related to a framework. However, "Balangkas" is a Filipino word that translates to "framework" in English, making it the most appropriate choice.

    Rate this question:

      BOLADA

      KANAL

    • C.

      ALULOD

    Correct Answer
    B. KANAL
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "KANAL" because it is the only word in the given options that is related to a gutter. A gutter is a channel or a pipe that collects and carries rainwater from a roof to a drain or a storage tank. Similarly, a "kanal" is a term used to describe a water channel or a waterway, which is closely related to the concept of a gutter. The other options, "bolada" and "alulod," do not have any direct association with gutters.

    Correct Answer
    C. ALULOD
    Explanation
    Among the given options, "ALULOD" is the only word that is related to the term "CONDUCTOR" in the context of water flow. An alulod is a gutter or channel that is used to conduct or direct the flow of rainwater. The other options, "PIERNO" and "KANAL," do not have any direct connection to the term "CONDUCTOR" in this context.

    • C.

      ESTAKA

    • C.

      PIERNO

    Correct Answer
    B. ESTAKA
    Explanation
    The word "stake" is similar to "estaka" in terms of pronunciation and spelling. "Kusturada" and "pierno" do not have any similarity to "stake." Therefore, "estaka" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    PLASTERED COURSE

    • A.

      KUSTURADA

    • B.

      ESTAKA

    • C.

      BALANGKAS

    Correct Answer
    A. KUSTURADA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "KUSTURADA" because it is the only word in the given options that is related to the term "PLASTERED COURSE". The other two options, "ESTAKA" and "BALANGKAS", do not have any apparent connection to the term. Therefore, "KUSTURADA" is the most suitable answer based on the given options.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    STUCCO OR PLASTER

    • A.

      ESTAKA

    • B.

      PALITADA

    • C.

      KUSTURADA

    Correct Answer
    B. PALITADA
    Explanation
    The given answer "PALITADA" is the correct answer because it is a term commonly used in construction and refers to a finishing technique used in stucco or plaster application. "Estaka" and "kusturada" are not commonly used terms in this context, so they can be eliminated as possible answers.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    SCRATCH COAT

    • A.

      KUSTURADA

    • B.

      REBOCADA

    • C.

      ESTAKA

    Correct Answer
    B. REBOCADA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "REBOCADA." This answer is likely correct because "rebocada" translates to "plastered" or "rendered" in English, which is a term commonly used in construction or masonry. Given the context of the question, where "scratch coat" is mentioned, it is reasonable to assume that "rebocada" is the correct answer as it aligns with the topic of plastering or rendering a surface.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    PICKWORK (on masonry)

    • A.

      PIKETA

    • B.

      KUSTURADA

    • C.

      REBOCADA

    Correct Answer
    A. PIKETA
    Explanation
    The given words "PICKWORK," "PIKETA," "KUSTURADA," and "REBOCADA" are all related to masonry or construction work. Out of these words, "PIKETA" is the only one that makes sense in this context. "PICKWORK" is a made-up word, "KUSTURADA" and "REBOCADA" are not commonly used terms in masonry. Therefore, "PIKETA" is the correct answer as it is the only word that fits the given category.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    VARNISH FINISH

    • A.

      KUSTURADA

    • B.

      PALITADA

    • C.

      MONYEKA

    Correct Answer
    C. MONYEKA
    Explanation
    Among the given options, MONYEKA is the only one that is related to a type of finish. VARNISH FINISH is a type of finish used in woodworking to give a glossy and smooth appearance to the surface. KUSTURADA and PALITADA do not have any specific connection to finishes or woodworking. Therefore, the correct answer is MONYEKA.

    Rate this question:

  • 37. 

    SPACING OF GAP

    • A.

      MONYEKA

    • B.

      KUSTURADA

    • C.

      BIENTO

    Correct Answer
    C. BIENTO
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "BIENTO" because it is the only option that is spaced correctly. The other options, "MONYEKA" and "KUSTURADA," have extra spacing between the letters, which indicates that there is an error in their spacing. Therefore, "BIENTO" is the only option that is correctly spaced.

    Rate this question:

  • 38.

    • A.

      LARGA MASA

    • B.

      KUSTURADA

    • C.

      PALITADA

    Correct Answer
    A. LARGA MASA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "LARGA MASA" because it is the Spanish translation of "concrete slab." The other options, "kusturada" and "palitada," do not have any known meaning or relation to concrete slabs. Therefore, "LARGA MASA" is the most appropriate and logical choice.

    Rate this question:

  • 39.

      ASINTADA

    Correct Answer
    C. ASINTADA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ASINTADA" because it is the only word that can be formed using the given letters. The other two words, "KUSTURADA" and "PALITADA," cannot be formed using the letters provided.

    Rate this question:

  • 40. 

    PLUMB LINE

    • A.

      ASINTADA

    • B.

      HULOG

    • C.

      BIENTO

    Correct Answer
    B. HULOG
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "HULOG" because a plumb line is a weighted string or cord that is used to determine verticality or the alignment of an object with the force of gravity. "Hulog" is the Filipino word for "fall" or "drop," which relates to the concept of the plumb line as it measures the vertical drop or alignment of an object. "Asintada" means "aligned" or "straight," and "biento" means "wind," but these words do not directly relate to the concept of a plumb line.

    • C.

      KUSTURADA

    Correct Answer
    B. BALDOSA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "BALDOSA" because it is a term commonly used to refer to cement tiles in Spanish. "Palitada" and "Kusturada" do not specifically refer to cement tiles, while "Baldosa" is a widely recognized term for this type of tile.

    Rate this question:

  • 42. 

    CEMENT BRICK

    • A.

    • C.

      PALITADA

    Correct Answer
    A. LADRILYO
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "LADRILYO" because it is a term commonly used to refer to a cement brick in the Filipino language. The other options, "BALDOSA" and "PALITADA," do not specifically denote a cement brick and are not commonly used in the same context.

    Rate this question:

  • 43.

      BATIDORA

    • C.

      BALDOSA

    Correct Answer
    B. BATIDORA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is BATIDORA. This is because the other words, DOOR FILLET, LADRILYO, and BALDOSA, do not make sense in the context of the question. They are random words that do not relate to each other or provide any clue as to what the question is asking. BATIDORA, on the other hand, is a Spanish word that means "blender" in English. It is a word that is related to kitchen appliances and makes sense as a possible answer in this context.

    Correct Answer
    C. PLANTILYA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "PLANTILYA". All the given words are related to different types of patterns or schedules. "Baldosa" is a Spanish word for tile pattern, "Bisagra" is a Spanish word for hinge which indicates a pattern of movement, and "Plantilya" is a Spanish word for template or stencil which is a type of pattern used for guidance. Therefore, "Plantilya" fits the pattern of being related to patterns or schedules.
