Complete Analogous Pair (Non Verbal)

What is a Complete Analogous Pair?

  • A complete analogous pair is a type of analogy in non-verbal reasoning where two pairs of figures are given, and you have to find a third pair that has the same relationship as the first two pairs.
  • In this type of analogy, you need to identify the pattern or rule that connects the first two pairs and apply it to the third pair to find the missing figure.

Tips for Solving Complete Analogous Pairs

  • Look for the relationship between the figures in the first two pairs and try to identify the pattern or rule that connects them.
  • Apply the same pattern or rule to the third pair to find the missing figure.
  • Use the process of elimination to eliminate the options that do not fit the pattern or rule.
  • Try to visualize the figures in different orientations or positions to see if they fit the pattern or rule.

Practice Questions

Example 1: Find the figure from the answer figure that will replace the question mark (?) from the problem figure.

                    Analogy Non Verbal

Solution:  (3) By the careful analysis of first part of the problem figure, we find that from to second figure, the larger triangle become small and the small circle become large. In the same manner, from third to fourth figure, the large hexagon becomes small and the small pentagon become large as shown in figure (3).

Example 2: Find the figure from the answer figure that will replace the question mark (?) from the problem figure.

                    Analogy Non Verbal

Solution:  (4) By the careful analysis of first part of the problem figure, we find that first figure is rotated 900 clockwise to obtain the second figure. In the same manner, the third figure is rotated 900 clockwise to obtain the answer figure as given in option (4).

Example 3: Find the figure from the answer figure that will replace the question mark (?) from the problem figure.

                    Analogy Non Verbal

Solution:  (4) By the careful analysis of first part of the problem figure, we find that first figure has three lines which become four in the second figure, i.e., form first to second figure one line is added. In the same manner, third figure has five lines which will transform into a six line figure in the fourth figure as shown in option (4).

Example 4: Find the figure from the answer figure that will replace the question mark (?) from the problem figure.

                    Analogy Non Verbal

Solution:  (1) By the careful analysis of first part of the problem figure, we find that first to second figure, the upper and lower figures interchange their places, i.e., the upper figure becomes lower and the lower figure becomes upper figure. The upper figure also appears in pair after interchange of position. Similarly, from third to fourth figure the upper and lower figures interchange places and also the interchanged figures appear in pair as shown in figure (1).

Example 5: Find the figure from the answer figure that will replace the question mark (?) from the problem figure.

                    Analogy Non Verbal

Solution:  (4) By the careful analysis of first part of the problem figure, we find that first to second figure, each symbol moves one step downwards and the lower most symbol become the topmost symbol. Similarly from third to fourth figure, each symbol moves one step downward and the lowermost symbol become the topmost symbol as given in option (4).
