Do YOU know the difference between were, where and wear? Homophone quiz challenges players to pick out the correct word (and it's trickier than you think)

  • Playbuzz quiz challenges players to pick the correct word to use in a sentence
  • Each is a homophone - words that sound the same with different meanings
  • Its creator claims people will struggle to score more than 15/20 in the test 
Whether it's where, wear and were or there, their and they're, people often find themselves stumbling over homophones. 
This new Playbuzz quiz puts players' knowledge to the test by asking them to identify the word missing from a given sentence. 
The two possible answers sound the same but have very different meanings, which makes things a little trickier. 
Indeed the test's creator claims it's so difficult that people will struggle to score 15/20 or above. 
Think you have what it takes? Scroll down to take the test - but the answers are at the bottom, so not cheating...
