Word Analogy Answers

Week 11

1. SPECTATOR : PARTICIPANT :: HARSH : GENTLE



The best answer is HARSH. SPECTATOR and PARTICIPANT are antonyms – words that have opposite meanings. Therefore, the second pair of words must also be antonyms. HARSH is an antonym for GENTLE.

2. LIGHTNING : STORM :: WING : AIRPLANE



The best answer is WING. LIGHTNING is part of a STORM. Therefore, in the second pair of words, one word must also be part of the other. A WING is part of an AIRPLANE.

3. DESERT : HABITAT :: CROSSWORD : PUZZLE



The best answer is CROSSWORD. A DESERT is one item that fits into the category of a HABITAT. Therefore, in the second pair of words, one item must also fit into the category of the other. CROSSWORD is a PUZZLE.
