  • Analogy plays a significant role in problem solving.
  • It is important in decision making.
  • It helps to form a perception.
  • It helps to expand memory.
  • It helps to develop creativity and control emotion.
  • It helps to tackle explanation and communication.    





  • Descriptive, in which one word describes the other word, as in Blue : Sky.
  • Part to whole, in which one word is a part or piece of the other, as in Arm : Body.
  • Item to category, in which one word names something that falls into the group named by the other word, as in Milk :  Beverage.    




  • An analogy is a type of word problem that often appears on standardized tests.
  • Your goal in solving an analogy is to find a word that correctly completes the second pair.
  • At first glance, the words in an analogy may seem to have nothing to do with each other, but the words are always logically related.
  • Both pairs of words have the same kind of relationship.
  • To solve the analogy you need to find that relationship.

Here is an example: apple : fruit : : carrot: vegetable

Let's look more closely at the analogy. We should be able to see that apple is related to fruit in the same way that carrot is related to vegetable.

In both cases, the first word is a member of the group of the second word - an apple is a kind of fruit; a carrot is a kind of vegetable.

When we explain the relationship in a sentence, we have made a relationship sentence, a relationship, a connection, or a bridge between the two words.
