Quiz ~ Common but difficult words to spell

There are words that we use practically every day or hear several times a day but can we spell them correctly? Lets face it, the English language can be somewhat complicated. Some words have an overabundance of vowels – often the same ones which seem somewhat unnecessary at times. Does unnecessary really need two n’s and two s’s ?

As difficult as some words are to spell we need to get them right. So here is a quiz to test your spelling knowledge. Most are words you may have heard or used many times.  I will give a clue to the meaning in the question and you have to pick the correct spelling from two choices. Not bad, even if you guess you have a 50/50 chance. Have fun.
