Verbal analogy is a type of word relationship where two pairs of words are compared and the relationship between them is used to infer a new relationship between the two words in a third pair. In other words, it is a word problem that requires you to identify the relationship between two words and use that relationship to identify another pair of related words.
For example, a common type of verbal analogy is antonym analogy, where the two pairs of words have opposite meanings. For example, if the first pair of words is hot and cold, and the second pair of words is tall and short, then the relationship is that the second word in each pair is the opposite of the first word.
Verbal analogy questions can be found in tests such as standardized tests, aptitude tests, and IQ tests. They are often used to measure a person’s ability to reason logically and to understand relationships between words.
