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?

11 plus non-verbal 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?

11 plus non-verbal 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?

11 plus non-verbal 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?

11 plus non-verbal 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?

11 plus non-verbal 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.

The two figures on the left have an arrow between them. Decide how the second is related to the first. After these there is a third figure, then an arrow and then five more figures. Decide which of the five figures goes with the third one to make a pair like the two on the left.

11 plus non-verbal reasoning question 6

Answer : E

The figure is rotated 90 degrees clockwise, the outer two poles are moved to the inner two pole positions and the inner two poles are moved to the outer two pole positions and the colours of their two end shapes are inverted (i.e. if they are white they become black and vice versa).

The figures on the left have codes that go with them. You must decide how the code letters go with the figures. To the right of these codes, there is a figure followed by five codes. Which one of the five codes goes with this figure?

11 plus non-verbal reasoning question 7

Answer : E

Two figures have A as the second letter, and what these two figures have in common (and how they differ from the other figure) is that they both have a white arrowhead. So A as a second letter means that the figure has a white arrowhead. Therefore, B as a second letter means that the figure has a black arrowhead.

None of the figures have the same first letter, so the first letters all represent something different i.e. they represent the direction of the arrow i.e. C means that the arrow points upwards, D means that the arrow points to the right and E means that the arrow points downwards.

The five squares on the left have been arranged in order. One of these squares has been left empty. Which one of the five squares on the right should take the place of the empty square?

11 plus non-verbal reasoning question 8

Answer : D

Moving from left to right, the circle changes colour from white to black, the joined figure is rotated 180 degrees and the shading of the figure changes from horizontal to vertical.

Alternatively, you can think of this as two alternating sequences with the same pattern in each sequence.

Which one of the five figures on the right is most like the two on the left?

11 plus non-verbal reasoning question 9

Answer : B

The two figures on the left have the following in common: each figure has 3 parallel lines inside it, and each figure contains two inner shapes, one of which is a white square.

In the big square on the left, one of the small squares has been left empty. Which one of the five figures on the right should fill the empty square?

11 plus non-verbal reasoning question 10

Answer : E

For each row, the small corner squares switch their colour from black to white and white to black, and the arrow shape is rotated 45 degrees clockwise and is then replicated three times at 90 degree intervals.
