What is an analogy for any of these: Intercept, Condoling, Presumptuous, Apathy, and Foreshadowing?
Please explain the analogy in terms of "something is to something like something else is to something else" (__:__::__:__).

I think you must be looking for synonyms for the words you list in your question.
It is very hard to think of single words that can be substituted for the five words you have selected. A good dictionary will provide much better understanding of the shades of meaning such words can have in different contexts. You might consider posting a separate question for each word, since eNotes only permits editors to answer one question per posting. "Foreshadowing" is a word that could be discussed at considerable length, particularly in a story like "The Monkey's Paw" which foreshadows so many things, including miracles, good fortune, tragedy, sorrow, regret, and horror. W. W. Jacobs is a fine writer and possesses a rich vocabulary. You might have also asked for examples or quotations to illustrate the words you selected.
