Miller Analogies Test: MAT Practice Questions #2

The MAT (Miller Analogies Test) is a rigorous test, composed entirely of analogies, for graduate school admissions. Answering MAT practice questions like these will help you become accustomed to the way the MAT poses questions. On this second practice test (in a set of four), remember to use good technique throughout as you take it:

It's a good idea to circle questions you guessed on — after all, if you get them right, it may just be luck. Review questions you guessed on as carefully as you review questions you got wrong. After taking the test, review your mistakes and guesses as best you can so you learn as much as possible from the experience. Good luck!

If you want to make the experience realistic, then don't just look through the test. Instead, take it all at once, timed strictly, in a room where you won't be interrupted for approximately 12-1/2 minutes.
