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

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

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

completing these practice exercises will make you familiar with the question format. Third.501 Word Analogy Questions about : bout :: ______ : mend a. 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. You may find that you do very well on those questions that require logical deduction to find the correct answer. but that you have trouble with those questions that test word knowledge. Don’t worry! If you are getting the earlier questions correct. If you are using this book to study for a high school entrance exam. Because this book is designed for many levels of test takers. In the case of solving analogies. practice really does make perfect. near c. you will know that you need to spend more time improving your vocabulary. you may find that some of the more advanced questions are beyond your ability. the answer is amend because that is the word formed by adding an “a” in front of mend. First. tear d. You will also find scrambled words and anagrams in this category of analogies. if you are studying for a graduate-level exam such as the GRE or the MAT. your performance on these questions will help you assess your ability and vocabulary level. However. The more comfortable you are with the question format and the more familiar you are with the range of analogy types. you may get a number of questions that appear later in a section wrong. In this case. the easier this section on your test will become. Second. you will become familiar not only with word relationships and word meanings. They will also help you get used to identifying the relationships between pairs of words. you are probably in good shape for your test. but you will also learn to spot and disregard xii . amend b. The questions increase in difficulty as you move through each set of exercises. dismiss In this case.

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

You can even work in pencil and do the exercises again to reinforce what you have learned. but also the relationship that is used to solve the analogy. if you are studying for the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). In addition. Now all you need to do is complete each exercise. You have shown your commitment by purchasing this book. The answer section provides you with not only the right answer.501 Word Analogy Questions Finally. examine your answers to determine if a particular type of analogy question is giving you trouble. If you are looking for more challenging analogies. which contains analogies that are great practice for this unique test. let’s tackle the time issue. Most test takers have the necessary knowledge to answer the majority of analogy questions. Use your performance to create a study guide. then more practice is the answer. You may also find that your lack of word knowledge is causing you to answer questions incorrectly. Good luck! xiv . Each chapter contains between 35 and 50 questions. For example. what many test takers don’t have is the ability to answer the questions quickly. If you are simply having trouble with the more difficult questions. and the correct answers are explained at the end of each chapter. As you become more familiar with analogy questions. Chapter 12 is made up of more difficult analogy questions. don’t miss Chapter 13. you will find that you can answer the questions more quickly. study the answers. and watch your ability to solve analogies increase. You have already taken an important step toward improving your score. 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. and time can be an important factor with analogy questions. In this case you can spend time studying word lists to improve your performance. Most assessment tests are timed.
