Logical Reasoning - Analogies - Discussion

A good way to figure out the relationship in a given question is to make up a sentence that describes the relationship between the first two words. Then, try to use the same sentence to find out which of the answer choices completes the same relationship with the third word.


Yard is to inch as quart is to

[A]. gallon
[B]. ounce
[C]. milk
[D]. liquid

Answer: Option B


A yard is a larger measure than an inch (a yard contains 36 inches). A quart is a larger measure than an ounce (a quart contains 32 ounces). Gallon (choice a) is incorrect because it is larger than a quart. Choices c and d are incorrect because they are not units of measurement.

If Yard is larger than inch then between yard & inch there is foot.

So why not Gallon that is as away from Ounce as Yard from inch.

Ounce is a measure of weight. So I think gallon must be correct answer.

Quart and Gallon are the units of volume, whereas ounce is the unit of mass.

Quart is a quarter of a gallon, thus a unit of volume. They're saying 1 quart = 32 ounces. But I'm afraid they're wrong, because 1 quart = 32 fluid ounces. Ounce and fluid ounce are two completely different units, the former being a unit of mass and the latter a unit of volume. Hope they resolve the issue soon.

Ounce is a measure of mass. But gallon is a measure of liquids. Hence gallon is the answer.

Explain the correct meaning of yard and quart.

Yard and inch are units of length.
Similarly, quart and gallon are units of volume.
Hence, the correct answer is gallon.

What is meant by Ounce and quart?

Whereas Pint is the unit of measurement of liquid which is less than a quart.


Ounce in itself is totally different measurement ie. Of mass.

what is meant by ounce and quart?

Here ounce is a fluid ounce, which is a unit of volume lesser than a quart but greater than pint.
gallon>quart>fluid ounce>pint.

Ounce is also a unit of weight =28.35gm.

The quart is a unit of liquid measurements D is correct answer.

Mousami Oinam said: (Nov 10, 2020)  
Quart is unit of liquid capacity which is equal to quarter of a gallon. I think gallon is the right answer.

Joo Lee said: (Mar 7, 2022)  
Here, Gallon should be the right answer. Look at the other problems. It is about the types of measurement first. Gallon and quart are for the volume of the liquid. Oz is for mass.
