An analogy similar to those found on standardised tests is used to describe the relationship between modern, archaic, and weak. “Modern: outdated:: weak:” is the sequence, which means “Modern is to antiquated as weak is to,” followed by word alternatives for the student to consider.
Strong, firm, powerful, definite, unbreakable, able, and healthy are all viable options. Because students understand that modern and outdated are antonyms, sensible word alternatives for the phrase weak have the opposite description.
Students can complete the analogy from one of four options on standardised assessments. This type of question can be seen on a test’s “verbal comprehension” or “language” section.
