Oar is to rowboat as foot is to
running
sneaker
skateboard
jumping
Explanation:
An oar puts a rowboat into motion. A foot puts a skateboard into motion. The answer is not choice a because running is not an object that is put into motion by a foot. Sneaker (choice b) is incorrect because it is something worn on a foot. Jumping (choice d) is incorrect because although you do need feet to jump, jumping is not an object that is put into motion by means of a foot.

- oar is a wooden big stick used to push water backwards so that boat can move forward).
- rowboat is simply a kind of wooden boat that run over water.

So. Oar gives direction to the boat.

Similarly., Our foot gives direction to skateboard.
