In 'Completing The Analogous Pair', two words are given. These words are related to each other in some way. Another word is also given. The candidate is required to find out the relationship between the first two words and choose the word from the given alternatives, which bears the same relationship to the third word, as the first two bear.
Look at this series: 1.5, 2.3, 3.1, 3.9, . . .
What number should come next?
In this simple addition series, each number increases by 0.8.
Rule = (1st no.) (1st no. + 0.8 = 2nd no.) (2nd no. + 0.8 = 3rd number)...
Now (1.5) (1.5 + 0.8 = 2.3) (2.3 + 0.8 = 3.1) (3.1 + 0.8 = 3.9) (3.9 + 0.8 = 4.7)...
So the anwser is c = 4.7
