I think:

1)tree (don't know)

2)insect

3)rain

4)salad

analogy problems are very difficult, especially for non-native students.
1) grass prevents erosion :: dam prevents water flow

2) insect-- Right.

3) You didn't try this one.

4) rain -- Right.

5) grapes are made into wine :: squid are made into calamari

I think:

3) barrel

So basically all I need to do is to make a logical sentence that could answer both situations. For example:

A bill becomes a law; a larva becomes an insect. Or A bill turns into a law; a larva turns into an insect.
That's right.

string is like thread but larger:: a barrel is like a cask but larger

However, a well-written analogy can be tricky, with more than one way of comparing the items, and you have to find the best one.
