Directions to Solve
The words in the bottom row are related in the same way as the words in the top row. For each item, find the word that completes the bottom row of words.

1.
candle lamp floodlight
hut cottage ?
tent
city
dwelling
house
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Above the line, the relationship shows a progression of sources of light. The relationship below the line shows a progression of types of housing, from smallest to largest. (Choice a) is incorrect because a tent is smaller than a house. Choices b and c are wrong because they are not part of the progression.

Yes option B is right flood lights are used in the street.

I differ on the choice for this question because:

Houses, ordinarily, do NOT have floodlights and therefore the inference is of a much larger scale. Therefore B is a more suitable option or floodlight should be replaced with something like "main light" or overhead light, etc.
