Analogy Figures – Nonverbal Reasoning Questions and Answers

Here are different types of questions and answers based on non-verbal reasoning analogy that are asked various competitive exams.

Analogy (non-verbal reasoning) refers to correspondence or similarity in relationship. When a figure exhibits some kind of relationship with another figure on some basis then the two figures are said to be analogous to east other.


Direction: The second figure in the first part of the problem figures bears certain relationship to the first figure. Similarly, one of the figures of answer figures bears the same relationship to the first figure of the second part.

Answer: C – First design of first pair of problem figures is inverted and then placed on the original to get the second figure of the pair. Similar concept is used in second pair.
