# Abstract Reasoning Questions and Answers

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.

3, 6, 9 are geometrical figures containing line segments (the number of these line segments is half the number of sides in the figure) parallel to the sides of the figure.

1, 5, 8 consist of a circle and a triangle intersecting it. The triangle is also divided into two equal parts by a straight line.

2, 4, 7 are all funnel shaped figures.

2, 3, 6 are objects having base but not upper lid.

1, 4, 7 tare objects which have neither a base nor an upper lid attached to them.

8.

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

A.

1, 7, 9 contain two similar elements one inside the other but not touching each other.

2, 3, 6 contain two similar elements one inside the other and both touching each other.

4, 5, 8 are divided into equal parts by straight lines emerging from the centre.

D.

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

1, 4, 8 contain similar elements (not equal in size) each divided into four parts and attached to each other.

2, 5, 6 contain three elements (two of which are similar) placed one inside the other.

3, 7, 9 contain one element inside the other, which may or may not be similar.

10.
