TEST YOUR I.Q.



IMPORTANT! Read These Instructions First

This test has been carefully designed to measure the general intelligence level of both adults and children 9 years or older. If you follow the instructions below, the test will give you an accurate rating of your I.Q.

A.INSTRUCTIONS

  1. You have 45 minutes to answer the 60 questions. Do not exceed this time limit.
  2. Answer all questions. If you do not know the answer - guess. Guessing has been considered in the scoring. Do not leave any questions unanswered.
  3. If a question seems to have more than one answer or no correct answer at all, pick what you consider to be the best of the choices given. These questions are purposely designed to test your ability to think and reason.
  4. If a child is taking the test the parent should make certain the child understands the instructions and sample questions before he begins. If the child is a very poor reader, the parent may read the test questions to him, but he must not help him in any way with the answers. If the child is given any help, the test score will not reflect an accurate I.Q.

B. SAMPLE QUESTIONS

Carefully study the following sample questions before beginning the test.

I. In some questions you will be asked to make a comparison.
Example: Which one of the five makes the best comparison?
Boat is to water as airplane is to:
SUN - GROUND - WATER - SKY - TREE

The answer is sky. A boat travels through water. This can be compared to an airplane which travels through the sky.

You will also be asked to compare designs.
Example: Which one of the five makes the best comparison?


The answer is C. A circle which is divided into two parts can be compared to a square which is also divided into two parts.

II. In some questions, you will be given a group of five things. Four of them will have something in common; they will be similar in some way. You will be asked to choose the one which is not similar to the other four.
Example: Which one of the five is least like the other four?
DOG - CAR - CAT - BIRD - FISH

The answer is car. The others are all living animals. A car is not alive.

These questions may also have designs.
Example: Which one of the five is is least like the other four?


The answer is D. The others are all made with straight lines. A circle is a curved line.

III. In some questions you will be given numbers, or letters, which are in a certain order. They follow some pat- tern of arrangement. However, one of them will not fit. You will be asked to choose the one which does not fit into the pattern.
Example: Which one of the numbers does not belong in the following series?
1 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 13

The answer is 10. Starting with 1, the odd numbers are arranged in order, 10 is an even number which does not fit in the series.

IV.There will also be some problems which you will be asked to solve. These will not require any difficult math. Instead, they will be testing how logical you are - that is, how well do you think.

You are now ready to begin the test. Read each question carefully and write your answers on a piece of paper and compare your results with the correct ones AFTER you have completed the test. You have 45 minutes.
