What Word Completes The Analogy?"

(What is an analogy?)

DWELLING : IGLOO :: tool : hammer

  1. hard
  2. nails
  3. tool

The best answer is tool. The relationship between the first pair of words, dwelling and igloo, is that of item to category—one word names something that 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 hammer is a type of tool.
