I don't see how you get specifically from Banff to Yellowstone. There are other national parks in the U.S. Rockies . . . Glacier, Grand Tetons, Rocky Mountain, to name a few.

They're analogies. The trick is to find the relationship between the first two things. Then figure out what thing has the same relationship to the third thing. For example.. hat is to head as shoe is to _____. The answer is foot. Because the relationship between the first two things is that a hat is worn on your head. So you need to ask yourself, what is a shoe worn on? A foot. Some analogies are pretty easy so long as you know what the items are that are being related. These above are mostly straightforward... i.e. The Space Needle is in Seattle. Willis Tower is in Chicago. etc. Simple. But not all of them are about location. Japan is not in the Yen.. what's the relationship? Japan uses the Yen as currency. Slightly more difficult, but still pretty easy. Really difficult analogies involve complicated or hard to understand relationships. Like these. Difficulty is scalable which is why they use them on IQ tests

Tallinn is only nearest to Helsinki if you swim it, if you are walking Riga would be closer..........:o)

What are you talking about? Helsinki is clearly closer to Tallinn than Riga. Also, Buenos Aires and Montevideo are on opposite sides of Rio de La Plata while Tallinn and Helsinki are on opposite sides of the Gulf of Finland.

So what you're saying is that....Helsinki is actually...closer...to Tallinn...than Riga. Which was kind of the point of the analogy, right?

I haven't crossed a ton of borders by boat but those two I have (to Colonia, rather than to Montevideo, mind you). That's what made me think of it. I think the bodies of water separating them are part of the analogy. In both cases, you're headed north (or northeast) as well.

Direction would make more sense to me as a clue. But they arent both north. montevideo-buenos aires is nearly straight to the west, just as tallinn-helsinki is nearly exactly going north. And crossing the body of water does indeed seem to have something to do it it, both of them are ferry rides.

I've been to Stanley Park a few times and it still didn't register D: It's such a mundane name to me that it isn't as iconic or easily recognized as Central Park. Still, got a solid 15.

Agree with Banff = Yellowstone comments - an unlikely answer. Typed loads of high altitude US cities.

Well, there was only one comment; did you read the explanation as well? Both are the *first* national parks in their respective country. That is not random, unspecific, or vague in the least. Folks' lack of knowledge does not make a question a bad one – it's the opportunity to learn something new! Otherwise, why would you be on site like this – just so you can always know every answer because the questions are all super easy? That sounds dull and pointless… and you do know there's no prizes, right? ;-)

Actually lack of knowledge sort of made me get that one. A few months ago I had never heard of bannf, but came across it on this website and apparently known for its park. That is all I know about it, well and that it is in canada. So the only logical answer would be the most known national park in america.

For analogies you can always go obscure, like if one city has 3 bronze statues with a pigeon and then looking for other cities that has that aswell, but usually it is the most simply and recognisable answer.
