EXPLANATION

Explanation (1): Clearly first grows into the second.

Explanation (2): The first rotates about the second.

Explanation (3):  Clearly Sonnet is a part of Poem; similarly murder is one of the type of Crime.

Explanation (4): The relationship between GREAT and HSFBU is G followed by the next letter H and so on as shown below.

         

Explanation (5): The letters in the second part are moved six times to their right as explained below:

         

Explanation (6): In the word DOUBLE every two words from the beginning are interchanged to form OD BU EL.

         

Explanation (7): Even though the answer is E, there is a relation between all the letters when taken in series.

          Write them in series:

          D W E V F U G T H S I R

          Every alternative letter starting from D is in series as shown below

          D W E V F U G T H S I R

          Now take the remaining letters in reverse so that you can see they from are in series as well.

          D W E V F U G T H S I R

          So the next four letters should be J_K_

          Now fill the two blanks with the two preceding letters of R, that is P and Q, but in reverse.

          So JQKP should be the next series of letters that is not in the options. So answer is 5.

Explanation (8): Second is larger from the first.

Explanation (9): As ‘King’ is related to ‘Judge’, in the same way ‘Throne’ is related to ‘Bench’.

Explanation (10): ‘Tiny’ is the antonym of ‘Massive’ in the same way as ‘Folly’ is the antonym of ‘Wisdom’.
