spotting out the dissimilar

Example 1 :-
which one of the five words given below is different from the rest?
(A) Jasmine
(B) Marigold
(C) Rose
(D) Sandal
(E) Lotus

that means  four are almost same in nature but the rest one is different from the four.  so we just have to find out which one is different in terms of nature of four.

in examination of verbal reasoning spotting out the dissimilar is important because it will ask on every examination round about 2 to 4  marks and you know exactly how these marks are important as well.

Now lets look at this example

Example 2 :-

Which one of the letter groups is different from the rest groups ?
(A) KMO
(B) EFG
(C) GIK
(D) ACE
(E) LNP

Answer with Explanation :-  (B) in all the other letter groups according to alphabet one letter is missing between the first and second letters and one lettter is missing between the second and third letters. but in the group (B) all the letters are in alphabetic order. therefore, group (B) is different from the rest.

analogy is a parallel that is drawn between two different, but adequately similar events, situations of circumstances.
the following examples will clarify the idea clearly-
Example of  Relationship or analogy test shortcuts:-

SOME BASIC TIPS of Relationship or analogy test shortcuts

1)  Recognise the kind of the relationship between the pair of words given.
2)  Have a glance at the alternatives, for pairs of word with a similar relationship.
3)  Eliminate the alternatives that do not appear to be the fittest answer
4)  After that, if more than one pair of words seems to be fit, than again see the question pair.
5)  Then redefine and interpret the relationship in the question pair.
6)  For correct answer always return to the question pair.
7) The parts of speech must be the same in the related words/phrases.
