      Ample : scant

    Correct Answer
    D. Ample : scant
    Explanation
    The relationship between the words "radiant" and "somber" is that they are antonyms, with "radiant" meaning bright and cheerful, and "somber" meaning dark and gloomy. In the same way, the words "ample" and "scant" are also antonyms, with "ample" meaning plentiful or abundant, and "scant" meaning lacking or inadequate. Therefore, the analogy "radiant : somber :: ample : scant" is a valid analogy as both pairs of words exhibit the same relationship of being antonyms.

    Explanation
    The word "esteem" means to regard someone or something with admiration or respect. Similarly, "disdain" means to have a feeling of contempt or disgust towards someone or something. The word "repugnant" means extremely distasteful or unacceptable. Therefore, the relationship between "disdain" and "repugnant" is that disdain is a feeling similar to admiration, but towards something that is considered repugnant or disgusting.

Both a caricature and a portrait involve capturing the likeness of someone or something, making photograph : portrait the correct analogy.

    A. Vertigo : dizziness
    Explanation
    The analogy between myopia and nearsightedness suggests that myopia is a specific type of nearsightedness. Similarly, the analogy between vertigo and dizziness implies that vertigo is a specific type of dizziness. Therefore, the answer "vertigo : dizziness" is correct as it follows the same pattern of comparing a specific term to a more general term.

A symphony is a complex musical composition consisting of various musical elements, and a note is one of the individual sounds or tones within that composition.

Therefore, the relationship between painting and brushstroke is similar to the relationship between symphony and note.

Therefore, the correct answer is pessimist : negative.

Just as a principal is in charge of a school, a president is in charge of a nation, making this the most appropriate analogy.
