Letter Analogies :
questions in this area are similar to Verbal Analogies. Here, the questions are
based on the relationship between two groups of letters (instead of two
words as in Verbal Analogies). Typically, three sets of letters are given
followed by a question mark (where a fourth set of letters is supposed to
inserted). The student has to find the relation or order in which the letters
have been grouped together in the first two sets of letters on the left hand
side of the symbol : : and then find a set of letters to fit in place of the
question mark so that the third and the fourth set of letters will also have
the same relationship as the first and the second. The sequence or order in
which the letters are grouped can be illustrated by the following examples.
BDEG : DFGI : : HKMO : ______.
Two letters are added to each letter to get the next
letters in the analogy. .
