What word completes the analogy?
(What is an analogy?)

ASPIRIN : MEDICINE :: king : ruler

  1. king
  2. measurement
  3. government

The best answer is king. The relationship between the first pair of words, ASPIRIN and MEDICINE, is that of item to category—one word names something that fits into falls into the category, or group, named by the other word. Therefore, the second pair of words must also have an item-to-category relationship. A king is a type of ruler.
