In this type of questions, certain words will be given. The candidate is required to put them in the order in which they would be arranged in a dictionary and then state the word which is placed in the desired place. For such questions, the candidate requires a basic knowledge of the ‘Dictionary Usage’. In a dictionary, the words are put in alphabetical order. The words beginning with a particular letter are again arranged in alphabetical order with respect to the second letter of the word and so on.

(1) One (2) Three (3) Four (4) Two (5) None
