|Types of Analogies and Classification Recognition|
Here on this you will be provided with the Tips and Tricks of Analogy and classification Recognition. A variety of Analogy questions are being asked in competitive exams, but there is no rule of thumb to rapid them.
Basic general knowledge followed by a good vocabulary can easily help in solving such problems.
An analogy is a cognitive tool used to compare relationships between pairs of things, concepts, or ideas. It's a way of explaining or understanding something by drawing parallels between two different but similar situations. Analogies are commonly used to clarify complex ideas, enhance understanding, and make new concepts relatable by using familiar contexts
Example 1: 8 : 39 :: 72 : __ ?
Solution: 8 is first getting multiplied by 5 and then it is getting subtracted by 1 as 8 is the first multiple of 8. (8 = 8 × 1) = 8 × 5 – 1 = 39
We’ll first multiply 72 by 5 and then subtract 9 from it as 72 is the 9th multiple of 8. (72 = 8 × 9) = 72 × 5 – 9 = 351.
Example 2: Cannes : France :: Milan ______.
Solution: The most famous of city of France is Cannes whereas the most famous city of Italy is Milan.
Example 3: 9 * 5 : 5 :: 8 * 9 : ?
Solution: Multiply the digits and the unit digit is the answer.
9 × 5 = 45 : Its unit’s digit is 5.
8 × 9 = 72 : Its unit’s digit is 2.
Example 4: HJIK : MONP : : STUV : ?
Solution: H + 5 = M
J + 5 = N
I + 5 = O
K + 5 = P
S + 5 = X
T + 5 = Y
U + 5 = Z
V + 5 = A
Example 5: Apple : Fruit :: Carrot : ______.
(d) Root vegetable
Solution: Apple is a famous fruit whereas Carrot is a root vegetable.
