Can someone please explain to me this analogy?

Emulate:Person::
(A) admire:reputation
(B) obey:leader
(C) cooperate:partner
(D) mimic:gesture
(E) mock:sarcasm

I knew all these words, yet it threw me off!

Also, another analogy had used the word entertainment:divert. I never knew entertainment was also something that diverts.

Can you guys think of other common words that have unusual/less-used definitions? I only know of one more: pedestrian also means common. I think this question will not only help me, but other people as well.

the answer is d
Emulate is a way of copying a person, and mimic is a way of copying a gesture.
