can anyone help explain these analogies:

fathom : depth
appraise : value
fathom is to measure depth
appraise is to measure the value
lull : trust
cajole : compliance
to lull leads to trust
to cajole leads to compliance
remuneration : labor
trophy : victory
remuneration is payment for labor
trophy is payment for victory
corroborate : claim
document : assertion
to corroborate is to substantiate a claim
to document is to back up an assertion?

-fathom is a unit of measurment to measure depth, as appraise is to "measure" the value of something? I think I have it the wrong way, but I have another way its thats wrong.
-renumeration is to pay, so you usually seek recompense for your labor. Just as you would seek a trophy for a victory.
-corroborate means to support with evidence, so you would usually support a claim with evidence. Just as you would declare(assertion) something in a document.
Sorry if these don't make sense, Im really tired.

how about florid:prose
and another one
and also how does a lull lead to trust that doesn't make sense

-If you are lulled, its easier to trust. If you are cajoled, its easier for you to comply.
-a locomotive is used to move a train, just as a tractor is used to move a plow.
REMEMBER that a locomotive is the thing that moves on its on momentum, the train/trains are just the things that follow. i.e. the train on a wedding gown trails the bride as she walks.
-florid and ornate mean basically the same. prose is something that is usually dull so if its florid it's elaborately decorated. Just as ornate means to decorate...so to decorate a building which is usually boring?
Sorry, I cant really explain that in words...Math is my stronger side...

fathom : depth
appraise : value
When you fathom something you understand it's depth. (or you cannot fathom something because it has so much depth)
When you appraise something you understand it's value.
Fathom means to understand something usually in depth.
Appraise means to look at something in a complete way and understand its value.
Fathom and appraise are used as verbs, so it doesn't mean the unit of measurement or appraisal!

Yeah Number 9, that was my thinking for the fathom:depth one. As you'll note, I said, "fathom is a unit of measurment to measure depth, as appraise is to "measure" the value of something? I think I have it the wrong way, but I have another way its thats wrong. " That was my other thought..
