Oasis: Sand :: Island: ?
a) River b) Sea c) Water d) Waves
Here, first pair is ⇒ “Oasis: Sand” and second pair is “Island:?”. And, “∷” sign means first pair and second pair share similar relationship. 'Oasis' is a mass of water amidst ‘Sand’ similarly ‘Island’ is a mass of land amidst ‘water’. Note: It’d be Island: Sea had the first pair been Oasis: Desert. We’re given the name of thing desert is made of i.e. Sand. So, we’ll use the name of thing Sea is made of i.e. Water
Example 2: Simple Analogy
Sweet is to Chocolate as Book is to...?
a) Dictionary b) Library c) Encyclopedia d) Atlas
Here, Chocolate can be sweet or bitter but ‘Sweet’ is the enlarged form of chocolate. Similarly, ‘Encyclopedia’ is an enlarged form of a ‘book’.
Example 3: Number-based analogy
25: 37 :: 49: ?
a) 41 b) 56 c) 60 d) 65
Here, in 25 : 37 the pattern can be explained as x2 : [(x+1)2+1] where x2 is the first element as 25 = 5^2 and [(x+1)2+1] is the second element as 36 = (5+1)2 + 1. For 49, we know that 49 = 72 so second element = [(7+1)2+1] = 65 which is option d).
