Many standardized tests—including high school entrance exams. the SATs.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. puppy : dog :: kitten : ______. is read “puppy is to dog as kitten is to blank.” To . civil service exams. and others—use analogy questions to test both logic and reasoning skills and word knowledge. More accurately. the GREs. the “blank is to blank” format does not really answer the question precisely. you will develop the skills necessary to tackle each type of analogy question.” The answer is. of course. By completing the exercises in this book. you must first have a clear understanding of the words’ definitions and then use that understanding to determine how the words are related. Analogy questions are often described as “blank is to blank as blank is to blank. “cat. you might describe the relationship between puppy and dog as “a puppy is a young dog.” So for example. In order to solve analogy questions.” However. These questions ask test takers to identify relationships between pairs of words.

you can deduce that a country is necessary to complete the second pair. For example. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Part to Whole. or style by which an action is accomplished. is the second half of the first pair. A shower is light rainfall and a monsoon is heavy rainfall. These questions pair words that are related through function. For example in the question “Sherpa : Tibet :: Massai : ______. c. spoke : wheel. Manner. The relationships that are found in analogy questions fall into several general types. The correct answer is Kenya—Sherpa are people who live in Tibet and Massai are people who live in Kenya. This type of analogy describes the manner. In this type of question. bicycle. For example. d. Most analogy questions rely on your ability to deduce the correct relationship between words and to draw logical conclusions about the possible answer choices. For example.501 Word Analogy Questions determine the missing word. For example. you might say “a kitten is a young . orange : citrus. x . mountain. way. shower : monsoon. Function. hammer : build. These questions use pairs of words in which one word is a specific type in a general category. a country. An orange is a type of citrus. Kenya.” you can probably guess the correct answer from the following choices—a. desert— even if you do not know the exact meaning of the words in the question. a pair of words consists of a part and a whole. you could probably see that Kenya is the only country offered as a choice. Type and Category. For example. These questions test your ability to discern nuance of meaning among pairs of words. . . Even if you were unable to describe the relationship between the words because they are unfamiliar. A spoke is part of a wheel. As you know that Tibet . ” 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. A hammer is used to build. b. Degree of Intensity.

Even though these questions require some basic knowledge you can still apply logic to the question. K In this case you need to know that the chemical symbol for silver is Ag. Na b. The relationship is found in the arrangement of the letters. To cry signifies sorrow. This leaves you with Ag and K. Word knowledge questions are generally pairs of synonyms or pairs of antonyms. For example.501 Word Analogy Questions ■ ■ shamble : walk. Ag d. In this type of analogy one word describes an action and the other word indicates the significance of the action. if you know that the chemical name for table salt is NaCl. For example: xi . Symbol or representation. you can eliminate these two answers. cry : sorrow. dove : peace. Action and significance. Cl c. Liberal and generous are synonyms. Factual content questions demand a certain level of general knowledge. For example. then Ag would be an excellent educated guess. There is a final type of analogy question that is purely a logic test. For example: iron : Fe :: silver : ______ a. tardy : ______ :: liberal : generous. If you happen to know that the French word for silver is argent. A dove is a symbol of peace. therefore you would look for a synonym of tardy among the answer choices. Analogy questions can also be used to test word knowledge and factual content. These questions pair seemingly unrelated words. and cannot be deduced from the relationship alone. For example. These questions pair words in which one word is the symbol of the other. Shamble means to walk in an awkward manner. For example.

dismiss In this case. The more comfortable you are with the question format and the more familiar you are with the range of analogy types. amend b. you may find that some of the more advanced questions are beyond your ability. practice really does make perfect. but that you have trouble with those questions that test word knowledge. Third. You may find that you do very well on those questions that require logical deduction to find the correct answer. In this case. If you are using this book to study for a high school entrance exam. First. In the case of solving analogies. the easier this section on your test will become.

The questions increase in difficulty as you move through each set of exercises. the answer is amend because that is the word formed by adding an “a” in front of mend. the full range of questions presented is appropriate for your level.501 Word Analogy Questions about : bout :: ______ : mend a. you may get a number of questions that appear later in a section wrong. your performance on these questions will help you assess your ability and vocabulary level. completing these practice exercises will make you familiar with the question format. Don’t worry! If you are getting the earlier questions correct. They will also help you get used to identifying the relationships between pairs of words. but you will also learn to spot and disregard xii . if you are studying for a graduate-level exam such as the GRE or the MAT. However. you will know that you need to spend more time improving your vocabulary.

Some test takers will impulsively pick a because humid is related to the first word pair. you must first figure out the relationship.501 Word Analogy Questions wrong answer choices through practice. Test preparers often spend as much time on wrong answer choices as they do the right answer. however. These are all illustrations of ways in which test takers can get thrown off or distracted by wrong answer choices. let’s take a closer look at choices a. as time runs out. is a synonym pair. and lots of practice will help you to avoid the wrong answer trap. showing faulty reasoning skills. amusing To come up with the correct answer. warm : hot. To illustrate how some test takers get led astray by carefully crafted wrong answer choices. humid b. there may be a pattern to your wrong answers. Careful. xiii . summer is chosen because warm : hot reminds the test taker of summer. let’s consider this analogy and answer choices: warm : hot :: ______ : hilarious a. close reading. Choosing c is a slightly different case. you are more prone to make careless mistakes. there may seem to be many different reasons for getting various questions wrong. warm and hot. This is an analogy of degrees. At closer look. and c. Other test takers will choose b because they have misunderstood the analogy. They may think that the word pair. but it is not part of the analogy of degree. so remain in control and stay alert. raucous c. In this example. This choice is offered as an option for the careless reader. so read carefully and stay calm. therefore what answer choice is something that is less intense than hilarious? The right answer is d. Warm is less intense than hot. Wrong answers may also be chosen because of the test taker’s predisposition. Your reasoning skills and power of logic work better when you are not flustered. And remember. At first. summer d. based on the relationship of amusing being less intense than hilarious.

You can even work in pencil and do the exercises again to reinforce what you have learned. study the answers. don’t miss Chapter 13. Good luck! xiv . Most assessment tests are timed. but also the relationship that is used to solve the analogy. Most test takers have the necessary knowledge to answer the majority of analogy questions.
