This book is designed to help you prepare for the verbal and reasoning sections of many assessment and entrance exams. By completing the exercises in this book. civil service exams. and others—use analogy questions to test both logic and reasoning skills and word knowledge. Many standardized tests—including high school entrance exams. “cat. In order to solve analogy questions. you might describe the relationship between puppy and dog as “a puppy is a young dog. the SATs. puppy : dog :: kitten : ______.” To . of course.

shower : monsoon. is the second half of the first pair. This type of analogy describes the manner. orange : citrus. The relationships that are found in analogy questions fall into several general types. A spoke is part of a wheel. spoke : wheel. a pair of words consists of a part and a whole. you might say “a kitten is a young . Most analogy questions rely on your ability to deduce the correct relationship between words and to draw logical conclusions about the possible answer choices. An orange is a type of citrus. x . Function. Degree of Intensity. you could probably see that Kenya is the only country offered as a choice. . For example. These questions use pairs of words in which one word is a specific type in a general category. A hammer is used to build. c. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Part to Whole. A shower is light rainfall and a monsoon is heavy rainfall.501 Word Analogy Questions determine the missing word. way. For example. hammer : build. a country.

These questions test your ability to discern nuance of meaning among pairs of words. For example. ” The key to solving an analogy question is to precisely describe the relationship between the pair of words and then apply the same relationship to determine which word completes the analogy.

shamble : walk. Shamble means to walk in an awkward manner. Symbol or representation. These questions pair words in which one word is the symbol of the other. For example, dove : peace.

To cry signifies sorrow.

Analogy questions can also be used to test word knowledge and factual content. Word knowledge questions are generally pairs of synonyms or pairs of antonyms. For example, tardy : ______ :: liberal : generous. Liberal and generous are synonyms, therefore you would look for a synonym of tardy among the answer choices. Factual content questions demand a certain level of general knowledge, and cannot be deduced from the relationship alone. For example: iron : Fe :: silver : ______ a. Na b. Cl c. Ag d. K In this case you need to know that the chemical symbol for silver is Ag. Even though these questions require some basic knowledge you can still apply logic to the question. For example, if you know that the chemical name for table salt is NaCl, you can eliminate these two answers. This leaves you with Ag and K. If you happen to know that the French word for silver is argent, then Ag would be an excellent educated guess. There is a final type of analogy question that is purely a logic test. These questions pair seemingly unrelated words. The relationship is found in the arrangement of the letters. For example:

Because this book is designed for many levels of test takers, you may find that some of the more advanced questions are beyond your ability. If you are using this book to study for a high school entrance exam, you may get a number of questions that appear later in a section wrong. Don’t worry! If you are getting the earlier questions correct, you are probably in good shape for your test. However, if you are studying for a graduate-level exam such as the GRE or the MAT, the full range of questions presented is appropriate for your level. The questions in this book can help you prepare for your test in many ways. First, completing these practice exercises will make you familiar with the question format. They will also help you get used to identifying the relationships between pairs of words. In the case of solving analogies, practice really does make perfect. The more comfortable you are with the question format and the more familiar you are with the range of analogy types, the easier this section on your test will become. Second, your performance on these questions will help you assess your ability and vocabulary level.

wrong answer choices through practice. At first, there may seem to be many different reasons for getting various questions wrong. At closer look, however, there may be a pattern to your wrong answers. Test preparers often spend as much time on wrong answer choices as they do the right answer. For instance, let’s consider this analogy and answer choices: warm : hot :: ______ : hilarious a. humid b. raucous c. summer d. amusing To come up with the correct answer, you must first figure out the relationship. This is an analogy of degrees. Warm is less intense than hot, therefore what answer choice is something that is less intense than hilarious? The right answer is d, based on the relationship of amusing being less intense than hilarious. To illustrate how some test takers get led astray by carefully crafted wrong answer choices, let’s take a closer look at choices a, b, and c. Some test takers will impulsively pick a because humid is related to the first word pair, warm and hot, but it is not part of the analogy of degree. This choice is offered as an option for the careless reader. Other test takers will choose b because they have misunderstood the analogy. They may think that the word pair, warm : hot, is a synonym pair, showing faulty reasoning skills. Choosing c is a slightly different case. Wrong answers may also be chosen because of the test taker’s predisposition. In this example, summer is chosen because warm : hot reminds the test taker of summer. These are all illustrations of ways in which test takers can get thrown off or distracted by wrong answer choices. Careful, close reading, and lots of practice will help you to avoid the wrong answer trap. And remember, as time runs out, you are more prone to make careless mistakes, so read carefully and stay calm. Your reasoning skills and power of logic work better when you are not flustered, so remain in control and stay alert.
