How is California to Wyoming? I got it after typing in every state! But I don't get it. Great quiz anyway!

California is the most populous, Wyoming is the least.

Alaska is the largest, Rhode Island is the smallest.

Not sure how this is an analogy if the factors are completely different (population does not equal surface area). Otherwise, you might as well have put California to Wyoming = Alaska to Hawaii: the most northerly and the most southerly.

see explanation below. It's a little bit trickier than some analogies, but it still works. You guys probably shouldn't try my "very tricky analogies" quiz...

I think I get it:

The clue is most to least populated. The answer is largest to smallest.

That was the only one I missed. I had enough time left to type every state and I went alphabetically. (Apparently forgot Alaska or spelled it wrong.)

I went with Boulder at first instead of Hoover. It used to be Boulder Dam and it's just outside of Boulder City, NV, site of the Dam Short Film Festival.

Clue reads "Saint Paul is Minneapolis" instead of "...is to Minneapolis." I think residents of St. Paul or Minneapolis might take umbridge to that statement as written.

The relationship between California and Wyoming is different than the relationship between Alaska and Rhode Island. I don't believe it is a valid analogy.

Sure it is. You just have to phrase the connection correctly.

For example:

Among all states, California exemplifies the opposite quality that Wyoming represents the least of.

Among all states, Alaska exemplifies the opposite quality that Rhode Island represents the least of.

In the first case the quality you're considering is that of being populous, in the second case the quality being considered is that of having land area, but in each case the relationship between the first state and the second state is the same.

If you can come up with a sentence that explains the relationship between two things, and then plug in different things into that sentence, that's a valid analogy.

The qualities are not the same, and that breaks the analogy. The relationships are supposed to mirror. A valid analogy would be "California population is to Wyoming population as Alaska area is to Rhode Island area." In that case, "largest to smallest" would hold, but as written, it does not.

Stars:State::Stripe:____ should accept more answers. First, the current answer is arguably wrong. The stripes represent the 13 original states. Combinations of first states/13 original states/13 original colonies/etc should be accepted.
