Example Question #441 : Analogies

Complete the analogy.

Musician is to song as artist is to __________.

Possible Answers:

sculpture

book

creator

stage

entertainment

Correct answer:

sculpture

Explanation:

A musician produces songs. The answer, then, is what an artist produces. There are many options for what an artist may produce, but the only one listed is "sculpture." This is a better option than either "book" or "entertainment." "Author" or "writer" would have been used for "book." "Entertainment" is not very specific, but the first example, "musician" and "songs," is very specific.

clothes

Explanation:

Possible Answers:

rain

sky

stormy

Correct answer:

rain

Explanation:

"Lava" is the hot molten rock that comes out of a volcano when it erupts. So, "lava" comes from a "volcano." To solve this analogy you need to determine which of these is something that comes from a "cloud." The correct answer is "rain."

Example Question #445 : Analogies

Complete this analogy.

Baker is to bread as ______________.

Possible Answers:

time is to watch

gardener is to jail

police officer is to coffee

chef is to flowers

architect is to house

Correct answer:

architect is to house

Explanation:

Since bakers bake bread, we are looking for an answer choice that includes an occupation (e.g., baker) and a product that they help to make (e.g., bread). The only answer choice that fits this criterion is "Architect is to house" because architects help to build houses.
