Directions on how to write an analogy:

Word analogies test your ability to figure out relationships between words. You need to look at a pair of words (for example, cold : frigid) and decide how they are related. Common Kinds of AnalogiesSet and subset (color: blue) Succession or pattern (zig: zag) Synonyms (dry: parched) Antonyms (cold: hot) Greater than or less than (skyscraper: house) Relationship (or proportion) to each other (adult: child)

 

Decide which kind of analogy you want to write from the list above. Write the first pair of words like so; color : blue (example of set/subset)



Then write a second pair of words with the same relationship, but a different topic- like so; mammal : horse (example of set/subset)



Each analogy should be written so it reads in a single line like below; color : blue :: mammal : horse

read- “is to”

read- “as”
