Analogy (Non Verbal Tests)
What is an Analogy?
- An analogy is a comparison between two things that are usually thought to be different but have some similarities.
- In non-verbal reasoning, analogies are used to test your ability to recognize relationships between shapes, figures, and patterns.
Types of Analogies
- There are different types of analogies in non-verbal reasoning, including:
- Type of Figure: In this type, the relationship between the figures is based on their shape, size, orientation, or position.
- Type of Group: In this type, the relationship between the groups of figures is based on their arrangement, pattern, or sequence.
- Type of Transformation: In this type, the relationship between the figures is based on their transformation, such as rotation, reflection, or translation.
Tips for Solving Analogies
- Look for the relationship between the figures and try to identify the pattern or rule that connects them.
- Use the process of elimination to eliminate the options that do not fit the pattern or rule.
- Look for the common features or characteristics of the figures and try to apply them to the other figures.
- Try to visualize the figures in different orientations or positions to see if they fit the pattern or rule.
Each of the following questions consists of two sets of figures. Figures A, B, C and D constitute the Problem Set while figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 constitute the Answer Set. There is a definite relationship between figures A and B. Establish a similar relationship between figures C and D by selecting a suitable figure from the Answer Set that would replace the question mark (?) in fig. (D).
Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).
