Non Verbal Reasoning - Analogy

Exercise :: Analogy - Section 2

Each of the following questions consists of two sets of figures. Figures A, B, C and D constitute the Problem Set while figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 constitute the Answer Set. There is a definite relationship between figures A and B. Establish a similar relationship between figures C and D by selecting a suitable figure from the Answer Set that would replace the question mark (?) in fig. (D).

6. 

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

Problem Figures:                            Answer Figures:

7. 

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

Problem Figures:                            Answer Figures:
    (A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

8. 

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

Problem Figures:                            Answer Figures:
    (A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

A. 1
B. 2
C. 3
D. 4
E. 5

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

The upper element moves to the lower position; changes its size (reduces in size if initially larger and enlarges if initially smaller); gets laterally inverted and its circular part changes colour (becomes black if initially white and vice-versa). The lower element moves to the upper position; changes its size (reduces in size if initially larger and enlarges if initially smaller); rotates through 180o and its circular part changes colour (becomes black if initially white and vice-versa).

9. 

Select a suitable figure from the Answer Figures that would replace the question mark (?).

Problem Figures:                            Answer Figures:
    (A)     (B)      (C)     (D)                  (1)      (2)      (3)      (4)      (5)

A. 1
B. 2
C. 3
D. 4
E. 5

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

The smaller element gets enlarged. The larger element reduces in size; gets vertically inverted; moves inside the other element and gets attached to its upper end.
