Here are a few helpful hints when trying to figure out Analogies.
AO or F
If this one of these are your sentence:
- (A) I weave (B) the blanket (C) with the loom.
- (A) I write (B) the essay (C) with the pen.
- (A) I nourish (B) my body (C) with the food.
- A:B is AO
- A:C is F
S or D
For it to be S (or D) each word in the pair has to be the same part of speech as the other.
Synonym example: find (v.) : lose (v.).
Degree example: whimper (v.) : cry (v.)
To tell S from D, ask yourself, “Which one is less/more? Or are they the same amount?”
- less/more = D
- same amount = S
This will always be a thing and a description. That means it’s a noun and an adjective.
- sky (noun) : blue (adjective)
- puppy (noun) : furry (adjective)
