How to solve analogy questions in verbal reasoning?
Analogy and Classification questions for SSB
Fun : Party: Excitement
Reasoning by analogy is a process of transferring information or
meaning from one particular subject to (the analogue or source or materials) to
another particular subject (the target). It is a type of Logical Reasoning
where decision making, problem solving, perceptive power, memory, creativity
etc. of a candidate is tested. Like any other logical reasoning you need to
have only one tool to solve this. Because to become an officer in any cadre, logical reasoning is a prime quality to have in all the decision making processes.
Analogy questions can be different types and identifying the type
with common sense is the way to solve it. Some common types of analogies are:
Here the relationship between one set of words
will be same as the relationship between second set of words.
Example: See: Watch
:: Hear : Listen
Look at the relationship between given
set of words. Seeing something is similar to watching something. In the same
way we can have Hearing something is similar to listening something. Or
“See is to Watch
as Hear is to listen”
with Synonyms or same meaning.
Example: See: Watch
: Hear : Listen
with Antonyms or opposite meaning.
Example: Push: Pull : Lend:
Cause and Effect Analogy:-
Here there will be an emotion caused by some
action or some effect as a result of some actions.
Example: Joy: Success :
Success can cause Joy. In the same way a
Hurricane can cause Havoc.
Part and Whole Analogy:-
Example: Keyboard: Computer : Petal: Flower
Keyboard is a part of Computer. In
the same way Petal is a part of Flower.
Example: Car: Vehicle : Crow: Bird
Car can be classified as a Vehicle.
In the same way Crow can be classified as a Bird.
Example: Puppies: Furry : Fish: Slippery
Puppies are Furry. In the same way
Fish is Slippery.
Example: Giggle: Laugh : Sob: Cry
is the high point of Laughing. In the same way Sobbing is high point of Crying.
Example: Knife: Cut : Needle: Stich
Knife is used for Cutting. Needle is
used for Stitching.
Performer and Action Analogy:-
Example: Singer: Sing : Soldier: Defend
Singer will sing the song. In the
same way Soldier will defend his country.
Action and Object Analogy:-
Example: Vegetable: Cut :
You can cut a Vegetable. In the same
way you can throw a Ball.
Example: Shark: Sea ::
Lion : Forest
You can find a Shark in Sea. In the
same way you can find a Lion in the forest.
