To solve this analogy, you need to determine the relationship between ACEG and IKMO, and then find the option that has the same relationship with QSUW. One way to do this is to consider the letters in alphabetical order. In the first part of the analogy, A is to I as C is to K, E is to M, and G is to O. This suggests that the relationship between the letters in the first part of the analogy is that they are a fixed number of letters apart in the alphabet.

If we apply the same relationship to the second part of the analogy, we find that Y is a fixed number of letters away from Q, A is a fixed number of letters away from S, C is a fixed number of letters away from U, and E is a fixed number of letters away from W. The only option that satisfies this relationship is YACE, so the correct answer is YACE.

Given, ACEG:IKMO, here skipping the next letter the 3rd letter like A skipping B next is C, similarly C skipping D is E. Also I is 8th letter from A so there's I skipping J next is K and so on.

For the solution, QSUW: 8th letter from Q is Y so Next to Y is Z next to Z will be A, 3rd next to A is C, 3rd next to C is E. Therefore it's YACE, OPTION C.

I can't understand this question, because how S +8 A?

I can't understand this question because how S after +8 A?

I am not getting this clearly. Anyone explain me in detail.

In another way, For example, if we consider A then we have to leave 1 letter in between then C.

In a simple way you can see that each next letter is written by skipping one letter like A then D then E etc.
