June 2007, Passage 1, Question 2

The essence of tackling analogy questions on the GRE involves identifying similarities in character or method between different subjects, as demonstrated through the analysis of answer choices for a specific analogy question.
  • Analogy questions require comparing different subjects to find a similar characteristic or method.
  • The correct answer choice involves identifying two different techniques or elements being mixed together, akin to the achievements attributed to Dove in the passage.
  • Incorrect answer choices typically fail to demonstrate the mixing of two similar kinds of elements or techniques.
  • The correct analogy, in this case, is found in an option that mirrors Dove's blending of poetry and fiction, exemplified by a choreographer combining elements of ballet and jazz dance.
