  1. Finding links between items is possible for certain people by utilising their …………..
  2. They enjoy mental challenges and are skillful at ……….. which require planning and foresight.
  3. People with this type of intelligence are often good at going beyond the obvious by …………. and …………….


  1. logical skills
  2. games
    1. you can’t have the answer “chess” because the grammar would be wrong. “games which require” = plural noun.
    2. “planning and foresight” is a paraphrase for “strategy”.
  3. investigating  analysing (it is also possible to write “investigating, analysing”)
    1. “investigating and analysing” is WRONG. You are asked to provide the missing words. The word “and” is not missing. Be very careful not to lose marks in this way!

I hope this lesson was useful to you.

All the best
