### Type – 1: Analogy with Letters

AE: F:: CG:?

(a) H

(b) J

(c) L

(d) M

Replace the letters with their positions in the increasing order

A – 1

E – 5

F – 6 (1+5)

Using the same logic,

C – 3

G – 7

J – 10

351: 81:: 452:?

(a) 64

(b) 100

(c) 144

(d) 121

351 – 3+5+1 = 9

So, 92 = 81

Similarly,

452 – 4+5+2 = 11

So, 112 = 121

### Type – 3: Analogy with words

Obfuscate: Obscure :: Burnish: ?

(a) Enhance

(b) Oppose

(c) Expel

(d) Deny

Obfuscate – make something obscure, unclear, or unintelligible
