I have misplaced the answers to a paper and I am unsure about one if the answers.

Choose two words, one from each set of brackets that will complete the sentence in the best way.

Castle is to (soldier, rook, building) as school is to (fire, teacher, knight)
Thanks.
I think it is rook and teacher but I am doubting myself.

Thanks.

Surely it's soldier and teacher?

What paper is this from?

it has to be the same link in both sets.

So although castle and rook have a connection (chess) there is not a similar connection in the second set.

So I would say school and teacher.

You would find a soldier in a castle and a teacher in a school
