Word Analogy Answers

Week 6

1. MATCH : GAME :: GESTURE : MOVEMENT



The best answer is MOVEMENT. The relationship between the first pair of words, MATCH and GAME, is that of synonyms – words that have similar meanings. Therefore, the second pair of words must also be synonyms. GESTURE is a synonym for MOVEMENT.

2. GRIEVE : CELEBRATE :: LOSE : WIN



The best answer is LOSE. GRIEVE and CELEBRATE are antonyms – words that have opposite meanings. Therefore, the second pair of words must also be antonyms. LOSE is an antonym for WIN.

3. POETRY : RHYME :: OSTRICH : FEATHERS



The best answer is OSTRICH. RHYME is part of POETRY. Therefore, in the second pair of words, one word must also be part of the other. FEATHERS are part of an OSTRICH.
