Non Verbal Reasoning - Analogy - Discussion

Discussion :: Analogy - Section 1 (Q.No.1)

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).


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


The half-shaded leaf rotates 135oACW and the unshaded leaf rotates 135oCW.

I can't understand that please explain.

Shaily said: (Jun 4, 2011)  
Ok. Fist tell me. Whats acw & cw. ?

Suresh said: (Jun 5, 2011)  
Hi Shaily

ACW = Anticlockwise.
CW = Clockwise.

Vikram said: (Sep 8, 2011)  
Please explain.

Hari Krishna said: (Jan 8, 2012)  
Please tell me briefly explanation above.

Saranya said: (Feb 26, 2012)  
I can't understand that please explain

Suraj Kumar said: (Mar 17, 2012)  
Kindly guide me how to solve similaraties, series, codes, matrices non verbal reasoning? Describe one by one and stage by stage With full explanation.

Sumit said: (Apr 3, 2012)  
I don't understand angle please explen them.

Jude said: (Apr 3, 2012)  
What is the pattern of the plain leaf?

Doll said: (Apr 13, 2012)  
90 + 45 =135
Thus shaded and non shaded leaf moves by 135 angle

Sujan said: (May 8, 2012)  
In A the shaded leaf rotates 135 acw and non shaded leaf 135 cw but it is not the same in the second the half shaded leaf rotates 45 acw non shaded 135 cw so the problem figure does not follow the same pattern.

Jagannath Mishra said: (Jun 6, 2012)  
I think there is a confusion create between B & C.

Sweety said: (Aug 17, 2012)  
Shades leaf rotateed 135 acw degree fron 1 to b where as from b to c it rotates 45 degress so from c to d 145 degress...and non shaded leaf rotates 135 drees cw in a b c

Shyamoshree Maitra said: (Apr 6, 2013)  
Why the 2nd no. Column figure's answers are in different direction as compared to 1st no. Column?

Thaya said: (Oct 6, 2013)  
Right hand side rotating forward is anticlockwise.

Reverse direction by right hand clockwise.

Vik said: (Apr 16, 2014)  
b->c for shaded is not 135 degrees, it's 45.

Priyansh said: (Aug 2, 2014)  
Figure A is related only to B wheres Figure C is related only to D.

Deepthi said: (Aug 16, 2015)  
I am unable to understand. Can you explain in detail?

Jagruti said: (Aug 28, 2015)  
What is analogy? Please explain it.

Rakesh said: (Sep 28, 2015)  
If 1st image compare with the second then why not the second image is not like the first.

Sakshi Bhingude said: (Oct 29, 2015)  
1st image is bend to form 2nd image then 3rd image should also be bend.

Parmodsiroha said: (Jan 2, 2016)  
I don't think it's following the 135 degree pattern. There's something weird from B to C.

Sheshendra said: (May 22, 2016)  
I can't understand the 2nd option. The half-shaded part rotates 45-degree acw.

Please explain it.

Manik Maiti said: (May 22, 2016)  
Hi, I am going to appear SSB in Nov this year. Till now I am unable to solve nonverbal analogy.

Please give me guidelines so that I can solve it easily. Thanks in advance.

Garvit said: (Jan 16, 2017)  

Question is asked like if (A) is related to (B) then, in the same manner find the relation of (C) among the given options. (There is no relation between figure B and C whatsoever)

Half shaded leaf from (A) turns 135 degrees anticlockwise. Non shaded leaf from (A) turns 135 degrees clockwise. And thus forms figure (B).
Apply same theory in figure (C) to obtain the correct answer that is option 3.

Nikhil Kumar said: (Feb 27, 2017)  
Answer option 3 and 5 are same. What's the difference between the two?

Explain it.

Bigg said: (Apr 11, 2017)  
I am not understanding this, please give me the clear explanation.

Rohan said: (Apr 11, 2017)  
Not understanding, please anyone give me a clear explanation.

Akalya said: (May 13, 2017)  
I am not getting this. Please explain me.

Kruti said: (Jul 15, 2017)  
No @Nikhil Kumar.

Option 3 and 5 are not same, the angle is same but look at the shading given in leaf.

Focus on directions how leaves are moving. Hence option C is correct.

Prakash said: (Jul 26, 2017)  
Can anyone explain this problem briefly?


Arvind said: (Dec 26, 2017)  
What does ACW and CW stand for? Please give the explanation.

Harry said: (Feb 9, 2018)  


Vikas Tiwari said: (Feb 22, 2018)  
I think it is the fourth fig. As if rotating is taking into cause then it is also true. Also, it is not given about how many degrees it will rotate?

Muhammad Naveed said: (May 27, 2018)  
How to determine the angle?

Rahul said: (Jul 31, 2018)  
Can you please explain to me how it should be 3?

Neha said: (Oct 27, 2018)  
I can't understand please explain that clearly.

Hemant said: (Nov 2, 2018)  
I am not understanding this. Please explain me properly.

Ganga said: (Dec 2, 2018)  

See the dir of the leaves which are moving and then focus on an angle.

Abby said: (Jul 25, 2019)  

On B and C the black bit in each leaf is in a different position.

Catih said: (Jul 25, 2019)  
@Nikhil Kumar.

The black bits in 3 and 5 are in different positions.

Maliya said: (Aug 2, 2019)  
I didn't get it. Please explain me.

B.Kavitha said: (Dec 23, 2020)  
How to identify the A B and C relationship? Explain please.

Simar said: (Mar 5, 2021)  
Please explain why not opt 4?
