Brain Teaser, part 2

I don't know if this is a brainteaser so much as I am asking for help with my homework.

Games Magazine's current online contest has "ten tough analogies," of which I can answer nine. The tenth is stumping me, though, so I'm hoping a faithful SoSG reader can help me out.

The question:

SILVER is to BONDS as GOLDEN is to ???
a) Stocks
b) Strong
c) Weak
d) Calliope

Any help would be appreciated. In exchange for the answer to this one, I'll trade you any of the other nine answers (at least, what I believe they are). Thanks.

i'm going to go with 'a' stocks... i.e. stocks and bonds. not sure if the hierarchy of gold over silver works with stocks over bonds. but it seems like the best option of the group.

Yeah, what's throwing me off is the use off the word "golden" rather than "gold". It's clear that the adjectival form is deliberate. Golden...anniversary? Grahams?

Isn't this cheating?

I look at it as "fair trade"
