Word of the day – analogous

For the next few weeks, METS will be posting a word of the day. Some will be in the SAT prep vein, others will be college-related words you may have heard, and not completely understood.

Today’s word is: analogous –

1. Similar or comparable to something else either in general or in some specific detail.
2. Similar in a way that invites comparison: showing an analogy or likeness that permits one to draw an analogy.
