In an analogy question, you will be given a pair of words, separated by colons, like this:

    APPLE : CORE ::
Your job is to discern the relationships between pairs of words. Given a pair of words, you find a second pair (from a choice of five pairs) that best matches the relationship in the original pair.

You can make better sense of this strange-looking question type if you translate the question into a sentence, as in: : "An APPLE is to a CORE in the same way that an X is to a Y."
