SIMMER : BOIL : :

A. Glide : drift

B. Drizzle : downpour

C. Gambol : play

Correct Answer :

B. Drizzle : downpour


Simmer is to cook something just below the boiling point. Glide and drift means quick or steady movement. Drizzle is light rain whereas downpour is a sudden heavy rain. Stagnate is to stop something, say the flow of water. Gambol is to jump or run about in a lively way. So the correct relationship is drizzle : downpour, as drizzle precedes downpour as simmer is a situation of cooking just below the boiling point.
