Rakesh said: (Dec 21, 2010)  
No the correct answer is "A". Becoz using spear we can thrust(push) similarily using iron we can injure badly by beating (mangle).

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Eskebar said: (Dec 28, 2010)  
Answer is [D]

spear and epee are both weapons.
you thrust with a spear
and you fence with an epee.
Hope this is the reason

Sai said: (Mar 2, 2011)  
Then option C also correct bow used arrow.

Heena said: (Jul 11, 2011)  
Yes eskebar is rite.

Aditi said: (Jul 19, 2011)  
No Rakesh you are wrong.

An epee(A fencing sword with a bowl-shaped guard and a long, narrow, fluted blade that has no cutting edge and tapers to a blunted point) is fenced.

And, a spear (A spear is a pole weapon consisting of a shaft, usually of wood, with a pointed head) is thrusted wid force.

Manoj Gupta said: (Jul 8, 2012)  
I thik answer c is correct answer because we through spear with thrust and arrow with bow both are required a force.

Varsha said: (Oct 12, 2012)  
Here thrust is used for protection from spear and in the same way fence protects from epee, here spear and epee both are weapons. So this option is absolutely correct.

What is an epee?

Monish said: (Oct 21, 2013)  
A fencing sword with a bowl-shaped guard and a long, narrow, fluted blade that has no cutting edge and tapers to a blunted point.

Bharat said: (Dec 12, 2013)  
What is the meaning of epee?

Bhanothu Praveen Kumar said: (Mar 13, 2014)  
EPEE meaning "a fencing sword similar to a foil but with a heavier blade".

Agila said: (May 15, 2014)  
I suggest bow and arrow because thrust means pushing with force and spear is a weapon so this also goes correct. Sorry if I m wrong.

Ramu said: (Aug 25, 2014)  
What is the meaning of spear?

Rakesh Kumar said: (Oct 18, 2014)  
A spear is a pole weapon consisting of a shaft, usually of wood, with a pointed head.

Damini.Arora said: (Aug 25, 2015)  
Thrust:spear::arrow:bow.

It should be in this order if we support option C.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Navneet.Singh said: (Oct 11, 2015)  
Epee is used for fencing and spear is used for thrust.

Vishal said: (Apr 7, 2016)  
Thrust is a reaction force using spear similarly fencing or fence is an activity which uses epee. EPEE is a long slim bladed sword.

Naga said: (Aug 19, 2016)  
How to find the answer for these questions? Please tell me the shortcut ideas.

Shabd said: (Sep 3, 2016)  
Ans:B.

Thrust the pointed part of the spear is a part of it [different material].

In the same way, scabbard [handle of the sword] is a part of it [different material].

Neelotpal said: (Dec 12, 2016)  
D is absolutely correct.

Akib said: (Dec 17, 2016)  
Right choice. Thrust and fencing are "art of attack", and spear and epee are "weapon for attack".

Haseeb said: (Jan 28, 2017)  
The answer is fence:epee definitely because you thrust with a spear and fence with an epee. The other options don't make sense.

Tennyson said: (May 29, 2017)  
I feel the answer is " C ".

Agree @Manoj Gupta.

Gaurav said: (Jun 25, 2017)  
Nope mangle is a machine used to Iron clothes hence should go with A.

Prasanthi Nistala said: (Jul 16, 2017)  
Here, First is the action performed with the second.

Sagar Mudi said: (Jan 26, 2019)  
Thanks @Varsha.

Rahul said: (Sep 11, 2019)  
In this analogy, the first one is action and the second one is a weapon where action is applied so that the answer will be D.

Gerald said: (Feb 6, 2021)  
C is the right answer.

Bob Jr said: (Jun 19, 2021)  
D is the correct answer, the reason is because you can't bow with an arrow.

Here Thrust is a verb and Spear is a noun. For Verbal Analogies, you must find the best answer not everything is so cut and dry. Bow and arrow are both nouns so although they are an answer they aren't the best. D on the other hand is both a verb fence and noun epee.

Aldrin said: (Aug 1, 2021)  
Spear lies in the sporting group of thrust. In the same way, epee lies in the sporting group of fencing. Fencing consists of three games; foil, epee and sabre.
