Example Question #21 : Location Or Situation

Complete the analogy.

Ceiling is to floor as sky is to ___________________.

Possible Answers:

cloud

airplane

ground

bird

weather

Correct answer:

ground

Explanation:

The ceiling is the upper limit of a room and the floor is the lower limit of a room. Since the sky is the upper limit of our environment, our answer must be the lower limit. The ground is the lower limit of our environment, therefore "ground" is the correct answer.  

Example Question #22 : Location Or Situation

Complete the analogy. 

Daughter is to mother as ________________ is to father.

Possible Answers:

grandfather

cousin

uncle

Correct answer:

son

Explanation:

Since the relationship between daughter and mother is a same-gender child-parent relationship, we must find the answer that completes the same-gender child-parent relationship where the parent is the father. Since a son is a male-gender child and a father is a male-gender parent, the correct answer is "son."

Explanation:

Since the nucleus is at the center of an atom, with all other components revolving around it, we must find the answer that states the center of a solar system, around which all else revolves. Since the sun is the center of the solar system, with planets revolving around it, the correct answer is "sun."
