What is chip and glass?

Solanki said:   1 decade ago
I don't understand. Grain is an unit of salt as we say "salt grain". Similarly we say "blades of grass". But then shred of pottery and chip of glass is also true. I am confused.

Vinoth said:   1 decade ago
So. You guys say that grain and salt has no relation, so the ans is chip and glass which also has no relation. ?!

Yes lalith is true.

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.

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".

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