Hi! I found this test without answers with very good analogies but the last one mystifies me:

Madam is to Madam as STRESSED is to?
a) desserts, b) desert, c) beach, d) harassed, e) beach

Is it about stress in words? And why beach is written twice?
Thank you!

The answers is desserts.

Madam is madam backwards

and

desserts is stressed backwards.

Maybe put beach twice as madam written twice?
An attempt to confuse?

Ha-Ha! Thanks! Did not think about reading backwards! Now I am really interested if DS would find the answer.
Many thanks!
