” So for example. These questions ask test takers to identify relationships between pairs of words.Introduction Welcome to 501 Word Analogy Questions! This book is designed to help you prepare for the verbal and reasoning sections of many assessment and entrance exams. and others—use analogy questions to test both logic and reasoning skills and word knowledge. you will develop the skills necessary to tackle each type of analogy question. you might describe the relationship between puppy and dog as “a puppy is a young dog. civil service exams. “cat. the SATs. puppy : dog :: kitten : ______.” However. Many standardized tests—including high school entrance exams.” The answer is. By completing the exercises in this book. the “blank is to blank” format does not really answer the question precisely. you must ﬁrst have a clear understanding of the words’ deﬁnitions and then use that understanding to determine how the words are related.” To . is read “puppy is to dog as kitten is to blank. More accurately. In order to solve analogy questions. of course. the GREs. Analogy questions are often described as “blank is to blank as blank is to blank.
In this type of question. Function. c. These questions pair words that are related through function. Type and Category.501 Word Analogy Questions determine the missing word. a country. The relationships that are found in analogy questions fall into several general types. bicycle. An orange is a type of citrus. For example.” you can probably guess the correct answer from the following choices—a. shower : monsoon. a pair of words consists of a part and a whole. For example. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Part to Whole. or style by which an action is accomplished. A spoke is part of a wheel. d. The correct answer is Kenya—Sherpa are people who live in Tibet and Massai are people who live in Kenya. you might say “a kitten is a young . This type of analogy describes the manner. . spoke : wheel. desert— even if you do not know the exact meaning of the words in the question. . These questions use pairs of words in which one word is a speciﬁc type in a general category. For example. These questions test your ability to discern nuance of meaning among pairs of words. orange : citrus. mountain. Degree of Intensity. ” 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. For example. Most analogy questions rely on your ability to deduce the correct relationship between words and to draw logical conclusions about the possible answer choices. Manner. As you know that Tibet . x . is the second half of the ﬁrst pair. For example in the question “Sherpa : Tibet :: Massai : ______. A shower is light rainfall and a monsoon is heavy rainfall. you can deduce that a country is necessary to complete the second pair. way. Kenya. you could probably see that Kenya is the only country offered as a choice. For example. hammer : build. A hammer is used to build. b. Even if you were unable to describe the relationship between the words because they are unfamiliar.
This leaves you with Ag and K. then Ag would be an excellent educated guess. therefore you would look for a synonym of tardy among the answer choices. if you know that the chemical name for table salt is NaCl. For example. If you happen to know that the French word for silver is argent. tardy : ______ :: liberal : generous. cry : sorrow. dove : peace. and cannot be deduced from the relationship alone.501 Word Analogy Questions ■ ■ shamble : walk. Even though these questions require some basic knowledge you can still apply logic to the question. To cry signiﬁes sorrow. For example: iron : Fe :: silver : ______ a. Analogy questions can also be used to test word knowledge and factual content. A dove is a symbol of peace. There is a ﬁnal type of analogy question that is purely a logic test. Liberal and generous are synonyms. Factual content questions demand a certain level of general knowledge. These questions pair seemingly unrelated words. Na b. The relationship is found in the arrangement of the letters. For example. For example. Symbol or representation. In this type of analogy one word describes an action and the other word indicates the signiﬁcance of the action. Shamble means to walk in an awkward manner. For example. you can eliminate these two answers. These questions pair words in which one word is the symbol of the other. K In this case you need to know that the chemical symbol for silver is Ag. Ag d. Cl c. Action and signiﬁcance. Word knowledge questions are generally pairs of synonyms or pairs of antonyms. For example: xi .
if you are studying for a graduate-level exam such as the GRE or the MAT. Because this book is designed for many levels of test takers. They will also help you get used to identifying the relationships between pairs of words. If you are using this book to study for a high school entrance exam. you may ﬁnd that some of the more advanced questions are beyond your ability. tear d. You will also ﬁnd scrambled words and anagrams in this category of analogies. In the case of solving analogies. However. completing these practice exercises will make you familiar with the question format. near c. the easier this section on your test will become. you will know that you need to spend more time improving your vocabulary. but that you have trouble with those questions that test word knowledge. The more comfortable you are with the question format and the more familiar you are with the range of analogy types. Don’t worry! If you are getting the earlier questions correct. You may ﬁnd that you do very well on those questions that require logical deduction to ﬁnd the correct answer. you will become familiar not only with word relationships and word meanings. The questions in this book can help you prepare for your test in many ways. dismiss In this case. amend b. the full range of questions presented is appropriate for your level. First. Third. you are probably in good shape for your test. In this case. practice really does make perfect. The questions increase in difﬁculty as you move through each set of exercises. your performance on these questions will help you assess your ability and vocabulary level.501 Word Analogy Questions about : bout :: ______ : mend a. you may get a number of questions that appear later in a section wrong. but you will also learn to spot and disregard xii . the answer is amend because that is the word formed by adding an “a” in front of mend. Second.
there may be a pattern to your wrong answers. These are all illustrations of ways in which test takers can get thrown off or distracted by wrong answer choices. At closer look. Careful. This choice is offered as an option for the careless reader.501 Word Analogy Questions wrong answer choices through practice. Warm is less intense than hot. Other test takers will choose b because they have misunderstood the analogy. close reading. therefore what answer choice is something that is less intense than hilarious? The right answer is d. In this example. summer d. To illustrate how some test takers get led astray by carefully crafted wrong answer choices. you are more prone to make careless mistakes. as time runs out. and lots of practice will help you to avoid the wrong answer trap. so remain in control and stay alert. showing faulty reasoning skills. At ﬁrst. humid b. b. And remember. however. let’s consider this analogy and answer choices: warm : hot :: ______ : hilarious a. For instance. so read carefully and stay calm. Some test takers will impulsively pick a because humid is related to the ﬁrst word pair. summer is chosen because warm : hot reminds the test taker of summer. warm and hot. there may seem to be many different reasons for getting various questions wrong. Your reasoning skills and power of logic work better when you are not ﬂustered. amusing To come up with the correct answer. raucous c. is a synonym pair. based on the relationship of amusing being less intense than hilarious. you must ﬁrst ﬁgure out the relationship. and c. This is an analogy of degrees. warm : hot. Choosing c is a slightly different case. but it is not part of the analogy of degree. They may think that the word pair. Wrong answers may also be chosen because of the test taker’s predisposition. let’s take a closer look at choices a. Test preparers often spend as much time on wrong answer choices as they do the right answer. xiii .
You can even work in pencil and do the exercises again to reinforce what you have learned.501 Word Analogy Questions Finally. For example. Most test takers have the necessary knowledge to answer the majority of analogy questions. let’s tackle the time issue. Most assessment tests are timed. The answer section provides you with not only the right answer. You have already taken an important step toward improving your score. if you are studying for the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). you will ﬁnd that you can answer the questions more quickly. but also the relationship that is used to solve the analogy. which contains analogies that are great practice for this unique test. You will be able to move through the basic questions with conﬁdence and allow yourself more time with the advanced questions without feeling the pressure of the clock. study the answers. examine your answers to determine if a particular type of analogy question is giving you trouble. and watch your ability to solve analogies increase. If you are looking for more challenging analogies. don’t miss Chapter 13. Use your performance to create a study guide. and the correct answers are explained at the end of each chapter. In addition. Each chapter contains between 35 and 50 questions. Chapter 12 is made up of more difﬁcult analogy questions. As you become more familiar with analogy questions. Now all you need to do is complete each exercise. what many test takers don’t have is the ability to answer the questions quickly. Good luck! xiv . In this case you can spend time studying word lists to improve your performance. and time can be an important factor with analogy questions. You may also ﬁnd that your lack of word knowledge is causing you to answer questions incorrectly. If you are simply having trouble with the more difﬁcult questions. You have shown your commitment by purchasing this book. then more practice is the answer.
