Gladiator : Arena     

Gladiator fights in Arena. i.e. X(person) shows his talent at Y(place).

  1. dancer  : stage            Dancer dances on the Stage.
  2. commuter : train       Commuter travels in train or Traveller travels in Train. (commuter means traveller)
  3. teacher : classroom  Teacher teaches in Classroom.
  4. lawyer : courtroom   Lawyer practices law in courtroom.

Now if you notice option B, Train is not a place where as in all the other options we have a place (Arena, stage, Classroom, courtroom.) So option B is eliminated.

So, options $A,C$ and $D$ are left and we need to pick the best among these. i.e. a dancer, a lawyer or a teacher.

Among these the best option is Option D. lawyer : courtroom because we can relate a Gladiator with the Lawyer

The Gladiator fights in the Arena to win battles, similarly a lawyer fights in the court to win cases.

$\therefore$ Option D. lawyer : courtroom  is the most appropriate choice.
