    Hope this proves to be helpful .The following pairs of words look similar and are easily confused with each other. Test writers often take advantage of this confusion. Some are very similar in meaning, while others are different. Know the difference!

    1) adulate and adulterate
    2) adverse and averse
    3) anachronism and anarchism
    4) antipathy and apathy
    5) ascetic and aesthetic
    6) baleful and baneful
    7) censure and censor
    8) capitulate and recapitulate
    9) disparate and desperate
    10) divers and diverse
    11) Elicit and illicit
    12) Heterogeneous and homogeneous
    13) Illusion and allusion
    14) imbibe and imbue
    15) imminent and eminent
    16) ingenious and ingenuous
    17) mendicant and mendacious
    18) penury and penurious
    19) pestilence and petulance
    20) qualitative and quantitative

    Thanks. That's quite useful.
    I'll go over them a day or so before the exam to clarify any confusions that i may have.

    Quite useful really.. hasn't been appreciated much here.
