    As we know that ,
    Stentorian refers to very loud, hence the relationship in the given words is one of ‘degree’.

    Correct Option: D

    As we know that ,
    Stentorian refers to very loud, hence the relationship in the given words is one of ‘degree’. This relationship of degree can be seen in option (d) as resplendent can refer to being very bright or shiny. Option (a) is wrong, because ‘mild’ is a general term, and isn’t especially talking about mild voice or sound; whereas, in the question, degree is asked of the same thing, i.e. sound. Option (c) is wrong, because it just doesn’t refer to the same relationship: painful refers to something that gives physical pain or distress, and prickly refers to something that is very irritable, which can be used to define someone’s nature; The degree relationship in the same sense, is not evident. Option (b) doesn’t display the same relationship.
    Hence , LOUD : STENTORIAN :: BRIGHT : RESPLENDENT is correct answer .
