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


ARKANSAS : STATE :: train : transportation

  1. tracks
  2. transportation
  3. travelers

The best answer is transportation. The relationship between the first pair of words, ARKANSAS and STATE, 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 train is a type of transportation.
