ANALOGY OF THE WEEK ANSWER EMMY The best answer is Emmy. The relationship between the first pair of words, TARANTULA and SPIDER, 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. An Emmy is a type of award.
