Hint: We form analogies to indicate a comparison between the two things based on their similar features or characteristics. Analogies are used for clarifying or explaining similarities.

Let us look at some examples of analogy-
1. Moon: Night:: Sun: Day
2. Swim: Swam:: Dance: Danced
Here, in (1), we can see a comparison between two pairs on the basis of time. We can see the moon during the night, whereas we are able to see the sun during the day.
In (2), we can see a comparison between two pairs on the basis of past tense. ‘Swam’ is the past tense of ‘swim’ as ‘danced’ is the past tense of ‘dance’.
In the given question- We can see four pairs, out of which a particular pair is differently related.
Author: Book is a differently related pair, because a ‘book’ is the outcome of the author's writing, while a farmer uses ‘plough’ in his field, a butcher uses a ‘chopper to cut meat and a jockey uses a ‘tack’. They all use a tool except for the author.
Let’s decipher the meaning of the given options-
Option a- ‘Farmer: Plough’ is an incorrect option because the given analogy shows the similarity between the two on the basis of the tool used by the farmer.
Option b- ‘Butcher: Chopper’ is an incorrect option because the given analogy shows the similarity between the two on the basis of the tool used by the butcher.
Option c- ‘Author: Book’ is the correct option, because an author uses a pen as a tool, not a book.
Option d- ‘Jockey: Tack’ is an incorrect option, because the given analogy shows the similarity between the two on the basis of the tool used by the jockey.
So, the correct answer is “Option c”.

Note:
Analogies include words that are different but share a particular feature or characteristic. Hence, it is important to comprehend the feature that indicates the similarity between the two words.
