Abstract reasoning tests assess your ability to identify the relationships between a series of shapes, patterns or images. The test is a good indicator of strategic thinking, how quickly you pick up new concepts and how well you cope under pressure. Practise with our Abstract Resoning test questions to help you know what to expect, improve your speed and confidence and be really prepared for the actual test.

Group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once.

A.

1,5,9 ; 2,7,8 ; 3,4,6

B.

1,5,6 ; 4,7,8 ; 2,3,9

C.

2,4,9 ; 6,7,8 ; 1,3,5

D.

3,7,8 ; 4,5,9 ; 1,2,6

Correct answer is **C**

2, 4, 9 have two similar elements intersecting each other.

6, 7, 8 have two different elements one placed inside the other.

1, 3, 5 have two different elements intersecting each other.

Group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once.

A.

1,3,9 ; 2,5,8 ; 4,6,7

B.

1,5,8 ; 4,6,7 ; 2,3,9

C.

2,5,9 ; 1,3,8 ; 2,6,7

D.

1,8,9 ; 4,6,7 ; 2,3,5

Correct answer is **B**

1, 5, 8 are all open figures bisected by a line segment.

4, 6, 7 are all closed figures touching a line segment.

2, 3, 9 are all closed figures intersected by a line.

Group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once.

A.

1,4,7 ; 3,6,9 ; 2,5,8

B.

1,6,9 ; 2,4,7 ; 3,5,8

C.

1,4,7 ; 2,6,9 ; 3,5,8

D.

1,5,7 ; 2,6,9 ; 3,4,8

Correct answer is **C**

3, 5, 8 have similar designs (four leaves placed close to a small circle and forming a symmetrical design at the centre of the figure).

2, 6, 9 have similar designs (three of the corners of the main figure are shaded black and there is a pattern formed around a '+' sign at the centre of the figure).

1, 4, 7 have similar designs (there are four small circles at(the corners of the main figure and there is a wheel shaped element at the centre of the figure).

Group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once.

A.

1,2,3 ; 4,5,8 ; 6,7,9

B.

1,5,6 ; 2,3,4 ; 7,8,9

C.

1,3,5 ; 2,4,8 ; 6,7,9

D.

1,4,7 ; 2,5,8 ; 3,6,9

Correct answer is **B**

1, 5, 6 have two similar elements, one inside the other.

2, 3, 4 contain straight lines each dividing, the figure into two equal parts.

7, 8, 9 have one element placed inside a different element.

Group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once.

A.

2,4,7 ; 1,6,9 ; 3,5,8

B.

1,3,5 ; 2,6,7 ; 4,8,9

C.

1,5,7 ; 2,3,6 ; 4,8,9

D.

1,3,5 ; 2,4,7 ; 6,8,9

Correct answer is **A**

1, 6, 9 are figures which are half shaded by slanting lines.

2, 4, 7 are all divided into equal parts (either three or four parts) by straight lines and also have a black circle at the centre.

3, 5, 8 have similar designs and have their four corners shaded black.
