English, Analogy- Single Word approach Part 5

This is the fifth part of the Verbal Relationship-Single Word Approach. In this kind of test you are asked to identify the relationship between two words that parallel as closely possible that same relationship.  For each question there are two sets of clues which will serve as a guide in choosing answer.

Suggested Techniques:
 In analyzing this type of questions try to state the relationship between the capitalized words in clear sentence. Since the purpose of this sentence is to analyze the nature of the connection between the pair of words in question, we will call it the analyzer.

After formulating a sentence that bests expresses the connection between the first pair of words, test each answer choice to find the pair of words that best fits the sentence.
