  1. c. Morpir means bird; quat means house; beel means blue; clak means bell. Choice c, which begins with quat, is the only possible option.
  2. b. According to this language, slar means jump. The suffix –ing is represented by –y. Since choice b is the only one that ends in the letter y, this is the only possible option.
  3. b. Brift means the root word mili–; the suffix amint means the same as the English suffix –tant; the root word ufton– means occupy; el means the suffix –ied of occupied; and alene means the suffix –tion. (Because ufton means occupy, choices a, c, and d can be easily ruled out.)
  4. a. Krekin means work; blaf means force; drita means ground; and alti means place. Drita means ground, so that rules out choices b and d. Choice c isn't correct because blaf means force. That leaves choice a as the only possible answer.
  5. d. Pleka means fruit; paki means cake; shillen means walk; treft means butter; and alan means cup. Therefore, alanpaki means cupcake.
  6. b. Pesl means basketball; ligen means court; strisi means room; olta means placement; and ganti means test. Because strisi means room, it must be present in the answer, so that rules out choice c. Choices a and d are incorrect because pesl means basketball and olta means placement. That leaves choice b as the only possible answer.
  7. a. Jalka means happy; mofti means birthday; hoze means party; mento means good; and gunn means the suffix –ness. We know the answer must include the suffix –ness. The only choice that uses that suffix is choice a.
  8. d. Mallon means blue; piml means light; tifl means berry; and arpan means "rasp" in raspberry. The word piml, which means light, is required for the word lighthouse. That rules out choices a and c. Arpan in choice b means "rasp," so that rules out choice b. That leaves choice d the only possible answer.
  9. a. Gemo means fair; linea means warning; geri means report; mitu means card; and gila means weather. Thus, gemogila is the correct choice.
  10. d. Apta means first; ose means base; epta means second; larta means ball; and buk means park. Thus, oselarta means baseball.
  11. c. In this language, the root word taga, which means care, follows the affix (relf, o–, or fer–). Therefore, in the word aftercare, the root word and the affix would be reversed in the artificial language. The only choice, then, is tagazen, because tagafer would mean less care.
  12. a. Malga means peach; uper means cobbler; port means juice; mogga means apple; and grop means jelly. Therefore, moggaport means apple juice.
