VR Type 15 - Word analogies


Instructions

In each of the following questions you must choose two words, one from each group in brackets, that best complete the sentence.

Method

To solve the question, you have to look at relationships between words. The relationship of the first word to one of the words of the first group needs to be the same relationship between the second word and one of the words of group 2. To start off, you need to find a connection between the first word and one of the words of group 1. Once you have found one or more connections, have a look at the second line. After you have found one or more of the connections here, compare line 1 and 2 to determine which words have the same relationship to the word outside of the brackets in each line.
