Insipid means lacking flavour nothing but tasteless.

Wan means pale and its something related to a person's complexion or appearance.

Pallid also means pale in colour which is related to a person's face and complexion is related to persons skin colour especially of the face.

So option C can also be a right answer.

C. Pallid : complexion.

In the analogy "WAN : COLOUR, " "WAN" refers to a lack of color or a pale appearance. Similarly, in option C, "pallid" refers to a similar lack of colour or a pale complexion.

Options A, B, and D do not exhibit the same relationship as "WAN : COLOUR. ".

Option A, "corpulent : weight, " does not fit the pattern, as corpulent refers to being overweight, which is not directly related to colour or hue.
Option B, "insipid : flavour, " does not follow the same pattern, as insipid means lacking taste or flavour, which is not directly related to colour or hue.
Option D, "enigmatic : puzzle, " also does not fit the pattern, as enigmatic means mysterious or puzzling, which is not directly related to colour or hue.
Therefore, option C ("Pallid : complexion") is the best analogy that maintains the relationship seen in "WAN : COLOUR. ".

I think the answer is wrong.

Because Wan refers to the pale colour.

Similarly, pallid refers to pale complexion.
