What the relation in chip and glass?

Can i know the relation between the chip and glass?

Grain and salt are opposite terms, they sound no meaning while comparing. Similarly chip and glass.

Here GRAIN means "The smallest possible unit of anything" so, in the question the smallest unit of salt particle has been given.

Therefore the correct answer will be "B".

Shred means "A tiny or scarcely detectable amount".

Shard is a broken piece of pottery and on the other hand shred is small amount of wood. So the words in A and B are related to each other respectively where blades are used to cut the grass but when we take a look at D you find no relation among chip and a glass as same as GRAIN:SALT. So D happens to be the answer.

Yes lalith is true.
