and others—use analogy questions to test both logic and reasoning skills and word knowledge. is read “puppy is to dog as kitten is to blank. In order to solve analogy questions. Analogy questions are often described as “blank is to blank as blank is to blank. you will develop the skills necessary to tackle each type of analogy question.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.” However. puppy : dog :: kitten : ______. you must ﬁrst have a clear understanding of the words’ deﬁnitions and then use that understanding to determine how the words are related. the SATs. the “blank is to blank” format does not really answer the question precisely. More accurately. These questions ask test takers to identify relationships between pairs of words. Many standardized tests—including high school entrance exams. you might describe the relationship between puppy and dog as “a puppy is a young dog. of course. By completing the exercises in this book.” The answer is.” So for example. “cat.” To . the GREs. civil service exams.
The relationships that are found in analogy questions fall into several general types. hammer : build. A spoke is part of a wheel. is the second half of the ﬁrst pair. orange : citrus. For example. . Degree of Intensity.501 Word Analogy Questions determine the missing word. you might say “a kitten is a young . In this type of question. A shower is light rainfall and a monsoon is heavy rainfall. For example. Type and Category. Most analogy questions rely on your ability to deduce the correct relationship between words and to draw logical conclusions about the possible answer choices. you can deduce that a country is necessary to complete the second pair. For example. or style by which an action is accomplished. . This type of analogy describes the manner.” you can probably guess the correct answer from the following choices—a. you could probably see that Kenya is the only country offered as a choice. a pair of words consists of a part and a whole. c. mountain. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Part to Whole. For example. spoke : wheel. These questions use pairs of words in which one word is a speciﬁc type in a general category. Even if you were unable to describe the relationship between the words because they are unfamiliar. Kenya. An orange is a type of citrus. x . desert— even if you do not know the exact meaning of the words in the question. 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. For example in the question “Sherpa : Tibet :: Massai : ______. d. Manner. These questions test your ability to discern nuance of meaning among pairs of words. As you know that Tibet . b. bicycle. Function. The correct answer is Kenya—Sherpa are people who live in Tibet and Massai are people who live in Kenya. A hammer is used to build. These questions pair words that are related through function. way. shower : monsoon. a country.
For example. In this type of analogy one word describes an action and the other word indicates the signiﬁcance of the action. Cl c. These questions pair words in which one word is the symbol of the other. therefore you would look for a synonym of tardy among the answer choices. A dove is a symbol of peace. For example.501 Word Analogy Questions ■ ■ shamble : walk. cry : sorrow. Symbol or representation. This leaves you with Ag and K. Na b. The relationship is found in the arrangement of the letters. Analogy questions can also be used to test word knowledge and factual content. K In this case you need to know that the chemical symbol for silver is Ag. Liberal and generous are synonyms. Factual content questions demand a certain level of general knowledge. For example: xi . For example: iron : Fe :: silver : ______ a. Ag d. Word knowledge questions are generally pairs of synonyms or pairs of antonyms. If you happen to know that the French word for silver is argent. you can eliminate these two answers. tardy : ______ :: liberal : generous. if you know that the chemical name for table salt is NaCl. There is a ﬁnal type of analogy question that is purely a logic test. Action and signiﬁcance. Shamble means to walk in an awkward manner. To cry signiﬁes sorrow. These questions pair seemingly unrelated words. For example. and cannot be deduced from the relationship alone. then Ag would be an excellent educated guess. dove : peace. Even though these questions require some basic knowledge you can still apply logic to the question. For example.
The questions increase in difﬁculty as you move through each set of exercises. In this case. In the case of solving analogies. Second. the easier this section on your test will become. Don’t worry! If you are getting the earlier questions correct. tear d. If you are using this book to study for a high school entrance exam. However. The more comfortable you are with the question format and the more familiar you are with the range of analogy types. practice really does make perfect.

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. amend b. but that you have trouble with those questions that test word knowledge. you will become familiar not only with word relationships and word meanings. You may ﬁnd that you do very well on those questions that require logical deduction to ﬁnd the correct answer.501 Word Analogy Questions about : bout :: ______ : mend a. completing these practice exercises will make you familiar with the question format. Third. dismiss In this case. The questions in this book can help you prepare for your test in many ways. you are probably in good shape for your test. the answer is amend because that is the word formed by adding an “a” in front of mend. First. if you are studying for a graduate-level exam such as the GRE or the MAT. you may get a number of questions that appear later in a section wrong.
Other test takers will choose b because they have misunderstood the analogy. so remain in control and stay alert. Some test takers will impulsively pick a because humid is related to the ﬁrst word pair. At ﬁrst. Test preparers often spend as much time on wrong answer choices as they do the right answer. To illustrate how some test takers get led astray by carefully crafted wrong answer choices. and lots of practice will help you to avoid the wrong answer trap. however. Choosing c is a slightly different case. summer d. summer is chosen because warm : hot reminds the test taker of summer. but it is not part of the analogy of degree. xiii . In this example.501 Word Analogy Questions wrong answer choices through practice. is a synonym pair. amusing To come up with the correct answer. humid b. therefore what answer choice is something that is less intense than hilarious? The right answer is d. warm and hot. They may think that the word pair. Wrong answers may also be chosen because of the test taker’s predisposition. b. you are more prone to make careless mistakes. For instance. there may be a pattern to your wrong answers. warm : hot. close reading. Warm is less intense than hot. let’s consider this analogy and answer choices: warm : hot :: ______ : hilarious a. and c. Your reasoning skills and power of logic work better when you are not ﬂustered. let’s take a closer look at choices a. This is an analogy of degrees. This choice is offered as an option for the careless reader. Careful. as time runs out. you must ﬁrst ﬁgure out the relationship. At closer look. And remember. based on the relationship of amusing being less intense than hilarious. so read carefully and stay calm. there may seem to be many different reasons for getting various questions wrong. showing faulty reasoning skills. raucous c. These are all illustrations of ways in which test takers can get thrown off or distracted by wrong answer choices.
then more practice is the answer. Use your performance to create a study guide. if you are studying for the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). Now all you need to do is complete each exercise. don’t miss Chapter 13. If you are simply having trouble with the more difﬁcult questions. In addition. You have already taken an important step toward improving your score. For example. but also the relationship that is used to solve the analogy. and the correct answers are explained at the end of each chapter. study the answers. and time can be an important factor with analogy questions. As you become more familiar with analogy questions. Chapter 12 is made up of more difﬁcult analogy questions. Each chapter contains between 35 and 50 questions. examine your answers to determine if a particular type of analogy question is giving you trouble. You can even work in pencil and do the exercises again to reinforce what you have learned. you will ﬁnd that you can answer the questions more quickly. Most assessment tests are timed. let’s tackle the time issue. which contains analogies that are great practice for this unique test. You may also ﬁnd that your lack of word knowledge is causing you to answer questions incorrectly. You have shown your commitment by purchasing this book.501 Word Analogy Questions Finally.
