    I'll give it to you Lyra.

    The actual answers were <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">#2-Chore and #8-Evening</span hide>, but thats close enough!

    Re: Teaser Analogies

    My feeling was

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> seventy is to seven as cent is to century

    seven(ty), cent(ury)

    I first thought of it being 10% of the answer but ventured the idea of endings

    Anyway Rudi says I'm right, so who's to argue.

    eye is to pupil as cherry is to stone ( or any other word that means the seed in the middle)

    Re: Teaser Analogies

    Going by the 'proportions', I would have said 10 centimes - it is a bit like saying seventy is to seven as one is to a hundred.
    Unless I misunderstand the word, I just don't see it as an analogy <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Teaser Analogies

    This is crazy, I was just looking up centime. It appears that the definition is 100th of the base currency, so (AFAIK) cent and centime are the same unless I am over ruled from loungers who have a better knowledge of currencies, I'll throw that question open to the Lounge.

    Re: Teaser Analogies

    leif, to be very honest...when I posted the puzzle...I scratched my head around this one too...but thought I was the dumb one for not seeing the sense of it. Anyway...I feel better now that YOU too don't understand its analogy.
    (I agree...it's a weird one!)
