    The analogy between "reptile" and "lizard" suggests a specific type of reptile. Similarly, the analogy between "flower" and "rose" implies a specific type of flower. The options "tree," "plant," and "fruit" are all general categories that do not specify a particular type of flower. Therefore, the most appropriate answer is "rose," as it represents a specific type of flower, just as "lizard" represents a specific type of reptile.

    Correct Answer
    A. Musician
    Explanation
    The analogy in this question is comparing the relationship between "play" and "actor" to the relationship between "concert" and another word. In this analogy, a play is a performance that involves an actor, and similarly, a concert is a performance that involves a musician. Therefore, the correct answer is "musician" as it represents the performer in a concert, just like an actor in a play.

    Sponges are known for their porous nature, meaning they have small holes or spaces that allow liquids or air to pass through. Similarly, rubber is known for its elasticity, meaning it can be stretched and then return to its original shape. Elasticity is the best analogy to describe the relationship between rubber and the given word "porous".

    Explanation
    The analogy between pen and poet suggests that a pen is a tool used by a poet to create art. Similarly, a needle is a tool used by a tailor to create clothing. Therefore, the correct answer is "tailor" as a needle is to a tailor as a pen is to a poet.

    • D.

      Patient

    Correct Answer
    C. Treatment
    Explanation
    The analogy in this question is comparing the relationship between an artist and painting to that of a doctor and treatment. Just as an artist creates paintings, a doctor provides treatment. The other options are not directly related to the analogy. A nurse assists the doctor, medicine is a component of treatment, and a patient receives treatment. However, none of these options capture the specific relationship between the profession and its action, as treatment is the action performed by a doctor.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      Restaurant

    • B.

    • C.

      Food

    • D.

      Dieting

    Correct Answer
    A. Restaurant
    Explanation
    The analogy in this question is comparing the relationship between exercise and the gym to the relationship between eating and a restaurant. Just as exercise is an activity that is typically done at a gym, eating is an activity that is typically done at a restaurant. The other options, fitness, food, and dieting, are related to eating in some way, but they do not fit the analogy as directly as the correct answer, restaurant.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Oar is to rowboat as foot is to

    • A.

      Falling

    • B.

      Jumping

    • C.

      Skateboard

    • D.

      Boat

    Correct Answer
    C. Skateboard
    Explanation
    The analogy here is that an oar is used to propel a rowboat, just like a foot is used to propel a skateboard. In both cases, the object being propelled is directly connected to the action being performed. Falling, jumping, and boat do not fit this analogy as they are not directly connected to the action of using a foot.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Scale is to fish as skin is to

    • A.

      Man

    • B.

      Dress

    • C.

      Feather

    • D.

      Cat

    Correct Answer
    B. Dress
    Explanation
    The analogy here is that scale is a characteristic or attribute of a fish, just as skin is a characteristic or attribute of a man. Similarly, dress is a characteristic or attribute of a person, making it the correct answer. Feather and cat do not have the same relationship with skin as dress does.

    Rate this question:

      Geometry

    • D.

      Sphere

    Correct Answer
    A. Square
    Explanation
    An arc is a curved portion of a circle, so the relationship between arc and circle is that an arc is a part of a circle. Similarly, a line is a straight portion of a square, so the relationship between line and square is that a line is a part of a square. Therefore, the correct answer is square.

The engine requires fuel to generate power and propel the vehicle forward. Without fuel, the engine would not be able to function effectively, just like our stomach would not be able to digest food and provide energy to our body. Therefore, the correct answer is engine.
