The verbal Ability section of GRE consists of a group of questions on Antonym the purpose of which is to test the strength of your vocabulary.

But GRE seeks to achieve this purpose in an indirect manner.
Each question features a word which has mutually opposite meaning. The answer choices will be given. One among them is an exact opposite to the featured word. These two words are known as antonyms of each other.

The common instructions for these types of questions are:
Each question below consists of a word printed in capital letters followed by five lettered words (from A to E) or phrases. Choose the one of the lettered word that is most nearly opposite in meaning to the word in capital letters. Since few of the questions require you to distinguish fine shades of meaning, be sure to consider all the choices before deciding which one is best.
