Abstract Reasoning Test
An abstract reasoning test assesses your ability to identify and interpret patterns. You need to identify the rules and patterns in sets of objects in order to find a missing object.
Abstract reasoning tests have been found to have a high correlation with general intelligence and the ability to reason logically.
Abstract reasoning is similar to inductive reasoning, and the two words are sometimes used interchangeably.
What questions can I expect?
In abstract reasoning questions you will be presented with a matrix of 3 rows and 3 columns with 8 items shown and one missing. You must find the pattern, rule or association between the items in the matrix in order to find the missing item.
