This puzzle is called Movin' On Up /Down One Step At a Time because in each set of clues the answer sought for the word on the right contains only one letter different from the one on the left and that letter follows it in the alphabet. For example if the clues for A-B were “deep sleep” and “hair utensil” the answers would be “coma” and “comb” as B comes after A in the alphabet. The changed letter can be found anywhere in the word, so if the clues for C-D were “cost” and “deadly sin” the respective answers would be “price” and “pride.”
