Can someone help me with the following analogy?

colloquy:loquacious
a)somnambulism:ambulatory
b)plateau:flat
c)octahedron:eight
d)toponym:noun

  1. Ms. Sue

    colloquy means conversation
    loquacious means talkative

    Be sure you understand the definitions of the other words.

    What do you think is the best analogy?

  2. Carson

    I was thinking it could be toponym:noun because a toponym is a place name and a noun is a person, place or thing. Does that make sense?

  3. Ms. Sue

    Think about A.

  4. Carson

    That was my second guess thank you Ms. Sue.

  5. Ms. Sue

    You're welcome, Carson.

    I have one more question. I think the author of this book made a mistake on the next analogy. Take a look and see if you agree.

    Platyhelminthes:platypus
    a)plateau:platitude
    b)worm:marsupial
    c)mammal:science
    d)crystalline:canine

    I think the author mistakenly labeled a platypus as a marsupial. Everything I find says they are not marsupials. Your thoughts?

    It is b because a platypus is a platyhhelminthes, and a worm is a marsupial
