# Non Verbal Reasoning - Analogy

### Exercise :: Analogy - Section 1

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).

41.

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

(A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

 A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5

Explanation:

The half-arrow rotates 90oACW and gets laterally inverted and moves to the adjacent side of the square boundary in a CW direction. The bent pin rotates 90oACW and moves to the adjacent side of the square boundary in a CW direction.

42.

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

(A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

 A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5

Explanation:

The inner element gets enlarged, rotates 45oCW and becomes the outer element. The outer element reduces in size, gets vertically inverted and becomes the inner element.

43.

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

(A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

 A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5

Explanation:

The two elements interchange positions; the element that reaches the LHS position gets vertically inverted and the element that reaches the RHS position, rotates 90oACW.

44.

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

(A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

 A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5

Explanation:

The figure rotates 90oCW and gets laterally inverted.

45.

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

(A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

 A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5
