Verbal analogies measure verbal analytical insight. The test can be used in selection procedures, especially for job positions in which verbal and/or written reasoning ability is important. For example in job roles where one must formulate a lot verbally and be able to distil the core messages out of verbal information.
The tasks consist of words which have a relationship with each other, presented in a square. From the list of words two words should be selected to complete the analogy, as in the example question.
