Reasoning : Analogy for Competitive Exams - Introduction

Leave a Comment
Analogy means correspondence. The analogy questions test the ability to see a relationship between two words or symbols and to apply this relationship to another set of words or symbols.

It is essentially a test of the ability to detect the exact nature of relationship. Many people, rather than examining the relationship, tend to use word association in their answer. One way to determine the best answer to an analogy question is to think of a word or phrase that links the first two words.

Let us look at the example below :

Ex :

Clock is to time as thermometer is to :
  1. temperature
  2. degrees
  3. weather
  4. centigrade
  5. none of these
A clock measures time; a thermometer measures temperature; hence temperature is the correct alternative. Verbal analogy questions usually appears in all levels of verbal ability, the important thing to remember is there is often more than one possible answer but you are looking for the word which best complete the analogy. 

Examples :
  1. News paper : Press :: Cloth : ?
    1. Tailor
    2. Textile
    3. Fibre
    4. Mill
    5. None of these 
      • Ans : Just as newspaper is prepared in a press, cloth is manufactured in the mill. So, the answer is (4)
