2.

GRAIN:SALT

 [A]. shard:pottery [B]. shred:wood [C]. blades:grass [D]. chip:glass

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Susmita said: (Nov 22, 2010) What the relation in chip and glass?

 Chandni said: (Nov 24, 2010) Please explain me this problem.

 Sai said: (Dec 9, 2010) Can i know the relation between the chip and glass?

 Ajay said: (Dec 16, 2010) Grain and salt are opposite terms, they sound no meaning while comparing. Similarly chip and glass.

 Rakesh said: (Dec 21, 2010) Here GRAIN means "The smallest possible unit of anything" so, in the question the smallest unit of salt particle has been given. Therefore the correct answer will be "B". Shred means "A tiny or scarcely detectable amount".

 Lalith said: (Dec 22, 2010) Shard is a broken piece of pottery and on the other hand shred is small amount of wood. So the words in A and B are related to each other respectively where blades are used to cut the grass but when we take a look at D you find no relation among chip and a glass as same as GRAIN:SALT. So D happens to be the answer.

 Gowthami said: (Jan 5, 2011) Yes lalith is true.

 Vinoth said: (Jan 7, 2011) So. You guys say that grain and salt has no relation, so the ans is chip and glass which also has no relation. ?!

 Solanki said: (Jan 13, 2011) I don't understand. Grain is an unit of salt as we say "salt grain". Similarly we say "blades of grass". But then shred of pottery and chip of glass is also true. I am confused.

 Janani said: (Feb 12, 2011) What is chip and glass?

 Bhuvaneswari said: (Mar 2, 2011) What is the difference between GRAIN, SALT ?

 Bartlee said: (Mar 14, 2011) I agree of the choice D because if you examined the question GRAIN;SALT there is no relation both of the two. So chip:glass has no relation too. It is logic that choice D is the answer.

 Swetha said: (Mar 18, 2011) What is chip and glass and how it is related to grain and salt?

 Sravanthi said: (Mar 24, 2011) How the chip and glass are related to grain and salt?

 Tracy said: (Apr 30, 2011) Hmmm I think chip and glass because elements of glass is called as chips and elements of salt as grains am I correct.

 Karthick M said: (May 17, 2011) HERE IS THE RELATION(the given answer is correct) grains of salt and chips of glass we refer tiny salt particles as SALT GRAINS and small pieces of glass as GLASS CHIPS got it guys?

 Karthick said: (May 20, 2011) Grain means little particle that is salt. Chip means break off, glass can be break.

 Ramesh said: (Aug 10, 2011) But salt represents the shape of grain and the grass of blades. So it should be grass n blade.

 Amar said: (Aug 12, 2011) Ramesh is exactly correct.

 Neel said: (Sep 6, 2011) Ramesh is absolutely wrong since the grain is considered as the smallest part of salt where as similarly chips are made of sio2 it is a part of glass hence D is the right option.

 Sudeshna said: (Sep 11, 2011) But a glass can be considered to b consisting even smaller units. Salt is a type of granular substance. But glass is not a chip-like substance. Then?

 Veera said: (Sep 13, 2011) I don't get it salt and grain chip and glass all are confusing!

 Karthik said: (Sep 16, 2011) I don't understand this.

 Jashwanth said: (Sep 24, 2011) I too think the same, all other options have some relation except option D, So 'D' is the answer (may be).

 Rosh said: (Nov 3, 2011) Grain of salt means a small amount of salt. Similarly a chip of glass means a small parts of glass. Grain and chip almost have the same meaning.

 Saran said: (Nov 4, 2011) Here grain refers to rice grain as sme small part of salt and simillarly chip can be part of glass.

 Ridhi said: (Nov 8, 2011) Option D is correct because when we consider each and every single particle of salt that is known as grain & when glass breaks into pieces then that is known as chips.

 Swetha said: (Nov 22, 2011) I didn't understand why answer is chip and glass. What is the relation?

 Subhrangsu said: (Dec 23, 2011) Ridhi may be right. It sounds a bit logical.

 Mandira Pandian said: (Mar 6, 2012) @swetha : the small broken part of glass is called glass chips. That is the relationship between glass and chip.

 Sneha said: (Mar 10, 2012) In English usage, we say 'a grain of salt', 'a blade of grass' and 'a chip of glass'. These are the smallest quantities by which the salt and the glass can be described. Blade of grass can also be one of the answers but chip of glass is the most appropriate analogy to salt:grain.

 Shweta said: (Mar 14, 2012) Saran is absolutely Right.

 Rocks said: (Feb 15, 2013) Chip Shop used for eating and Salt is also used for eating. So Answer is (D).

 Count Grishnack said: (Mar 28, 2013) No way it can be chip:glass. Shard is for brittle object hence a little relation with pottery, shred and wood no relation chip and glass no relation but blades of grass is there. It should have been blades of grass.

 Ritesh said: (Sep 16, 2013) Salt comprises of grains, i.e. salt is made up of grains, similarly, glass is formed by melting of small chips (beads). Shred is kind of wooden fillings and shard is a broken piece of pottery, so obviously D.

 Vivek said: (Nov 10, 2013) Here salt is taken in the incipient form not the powder. So I think you are correct @Ritesh.

 Sriram said: (Dec 13, 2013) More grains make salt. More chips make glass.

 Amrita said: (Dec 21, 2013) @Sriram: So in that manner more blades make grass as well. No?

 Shubhangi said: (May 12, 2014) I think friends. When grains are grinded it looks like salt. Similarly when any chip is destroyed it looks like broken pieces of glass. So I think they have some relation.

 Priya said: (Dec 6, 2014) The smallest part of salt is in grain form and glass is in chip.

 Srishti said: (Dec 25, 2014) The answer must be Blade:Grass. Salt is composed of grains. Grass is composed of individual blades.

 Shilohu said: (Jan 6, 2015) Grain == Salt. Here they are comparing the characteristics of the two substances. If you smash the grain it has same format as salt (physical appearance like sand). Similarity when we smash the chip it seems like small glass pieces.

 Lyla said: (Mar 31, 2015) Table salt NaCl is a crystal, that in the pure form is like a block, that is broken in to grains.

 Smiti said: (May 10, 2015) Does really glass and salt have any relation? I guess the similarity is no relation among them in both question and answer. I'm still confused. Can anyone make me clear?

 Asha said: (Aug 29, 2015) Its a problem of dissimilarity I think so.

 Sabbir Kaif said: (Sep 22, 2015) Seems so complicated!

 Arshiya said: (Oct 11, 2015) Very much confusing.

 Monika said: (Oct 16, 2015) If answer is on behalf of grain:salt have no relation then answer should be blade:glass why chip:glass? Chip can be piece of glass.

 Sai said: (Aug 28, 2016) The answer should be blade : grass.

 Anil said: (Sep 6, 2016) @Karthick M is correct. A small hard particle or Crystal : Grain. A small piece that has been broken off from something Larger : Chip. So, the answer is option D.

 Partha Sarathi said: (Sep 25, 2016) Why not blades:grass?

 Gopika said: (Oct 28, 2016) Thank you all for explaining it, I mostly get it know.

 Haseeb said: (Jan 28, 2017) Why it should not be blade:grass? Since it is a shard of glass and chip of wood which is not present there, the only one left that makes sense is blade:grass.

 Ezra said: (Dec 2, 2017) It should be blades: grass. A lot of individual salt grains make up salt; similarly, a lot of individual blades constitute grass. Also, if we consider chip: glass to be correct (as in, glass can be broken down to chips), then shred: wood would also be true since wood can be broken down to splinters/shreds and pottery to shards.

 Kishwar Khan said: (Feb 1, 2018) The answer should be blade :grass.

 Dhoni said: (May 19, 2018) What it means? Please explain.

 Aakash said: (Sep 16, 2018) Salt is prasent in the form of grain while glass comes in chips form.

 Vijay said: (Feb 20, 2019) I think it is sip and glass.

 Iman said: (Sep 6, 2020) What is the relation between chip and glass? Explain please.

 Chinmay said: (Nov 12, 2020) Salt consists of grains and glass is made up of chips.

 Alice said: (Dec 2, 2020) I think B is the right answer.

 Zakir Ullah said: (Jan 23, 2021) Please explain the relationship between chip and glass.

 Rishav Karna said: (Aug 15, 2021) Chip means a small piece of something removed in the course of chopping, cutting, or breaking a hard material such as wood or stone.

 Surya said: (Sep 15, 2021) Grain means a single part amounts to multiple parts Salt. Resembly, chip of glass amounts to a structure of glass.

 Surya said: (Sep 15, 2021) Grain means a single part amounts to multiple parts Salt. Resembly, chip of glass amounts to a structure of glass.

 Hemanth said: (Sep 18, 2021) @All. If we think technically, Chips (electronics) made up of sand &. Also glass is made up of sand. Then both are related.
