Based on some research I read recently. I'll post more about it when people have had the chance to have a go.

Poll #15102 Analogy-making game
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 13


Suppose the letter-string "abc" were changed to "abd"; how would you change the letter-string "ijk" in "the same way"?

OK, now try aabc -> aabd, ijkk -> ?

abc -> abd, kji -> ?

abc -> abd, mrrjjj -> ?

abc -> abd, rssttt -> ?

abc -> abd, xyz -> ?

Finally

I think my answer to q3 was informed by q2 having just hinted that left/right reversal wasn't a big deal. Without having seen that first I might well have given a different answer.

I vaguely remember it, but not what the conclusions are. I think somehow when it's presented as a logic puzzle people can get too involved in assuming there's a "the" right answer, when it's more like asking "how to pronounce 'unionised'", and it's ambiguous between multiple interpretations, and everyone may or may not see the same one as definitive. I'm interested to hear what you had to say.

I think I would be at risk of rebelling half way through.

It seemed strange to change what I inferred from the base case depending on the question asked, so it was a bit dull really except for xyz.

For some reason I found mrrjjj confusing and briefly wanted it to go to mrrkkk, All the others seemed obvious.
