The first shape or pattern is to the second shape or pattern as the third shape or pattern is to which one of the five on the right?

nonverbal reasoning question 1

nonverbal reasoning question 1

Answer : c

To get to the second pattern from the first pattern, the middle shape of the top row of the first pattern and the shape underneath it are flipped to the right. Then the first and third shapes of the top row reverse their outlines (i.e. the solid lines become dashed and the dashed lines become solid). Applying the same operations to the third pattern results in answer c.

Which one of the five boxes on the right completes the empty box on the left?

nonverbal reasoning question 2

nonverbal reasoning question 2

Answer : d

Within a row, each box contains two diagonally placed circles, the bottom one white and the top one black. These circles change their diagonal orientation between boxes (i.e. changing from top left, bottom right to bottom left, top right). Each box also contains a symbol at the bottom which alternates between white and black. Within each row, each box also contains a pattern which appears once, twice or three times, and the thickness of the pattern varies from thin to medium to thick between boxes. The empty box must therefore contain the pattern in d.

Which one of the five boxes on the right completes the empty box on the left?

nonverbal reasoning question 3

nonverbal reasoning question 3

Answer : b

As we move between boxes from left to right, the shape with the diagonal stripes is removed from its current box. The diagonal stripes are then transferred to one of the other shapes (i.e. the shape changes its shading to a diagonal striped shading) and this shape then becomes the next shape to be removed. The empty box therefore contains the pattern in b.

Which one of the five codes on the right goes with the shape or pattern to the left of the codes?

nonverbal reasoning question 4

nonverbal reasoning question 4

Answer : e

The first letter represents the direction of the pattern (C is upwards, with the triangle at the top, X is downwards, with the triangle at the bottom). The second letter represents the colour of the triangle (Y is white, H is black). The third letter represents the number of internal lines in the pattern (Z is 2, B is 3). The pattern to the left of the codes is in a downwards position (so its first letter is X), has a white triangle (so its second letter is Y) and has three internal lines (so its third letter is B). Therefore its code is XYB and the answer is e.

Which one of the five shapes or patterns on the right is most like the two on the left?

nonverbal reasoning question 5

nonverbal reasoning question 5

Answer : c

Each of the two patterns on the left has a medium width rectangle which has two of its sides crossed by each of the other two rectangles and these two rectangles do not cross each other. Also one of the two rectangles must cross the medium width rectangle at right angles. The most like pattern is therefore c.
