An aptitude test is a pre-employment assessment quiz, which is used to determine how well candidate is prepared and how well the candidate will succeed on the job. Aptitude Test is an umbrella for a variety of different tests. There are various different aptitude tests employers use, based on the job candidate might be applying for logical reasoning test, math, reasoning, test, numerical reasoning, diagramming, reasoning, situational judgment, verbal reasoning, and abstract reasoning test is just the not a full list of examples of a typical aptitude test. If you’re looking for a specific test, please make sure to find the relevant video on my channel to get ready and pass the test. Before we move forward. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Vadim Kalinka, and have MBA and master’s degree in computer science. I have more than 20 years of experience in information technology as a consultant, and 15 years of experience. As professional educator, I found that how to analyze data that net website to help people pass the interview, and assessment test and get hired for their dream jobs. In this video, I will show you most typical examples from a different aptitude tests, summarizing questions from logical reasoning test, math, reasoning tests, numerical reasoning tests, situational judgment tests, and abstract reasoning tests. I will also share with you answers, tips, tricks and hacks, and how to best prepare and pass the test. These questions are in no particular order. So make sure to watch the entire video to test your knowledge and get ready for the test. In this video, you will have everything you need to get ready and pass the test. Knowing answers to this questions helped a lot of people and I’m pretty sure it will help you as well. Take a moment and click the subscribe button at the bottom of the screen. And make sure to like, share, comment and ask me any questions. I’m happy to answer every question I receive. And now let’s go ahead and get started. And now let’s look at the question which confused tons of people during the test. How many squares are in this picture? And you have choices of 1629 30 and 32? Which one do you think is right? The confusion part of this question comes was the fact that squares are not only the small squares that shown in the picture. So if you do only small squares that the answer would be 16. But you can have this area as a square, you can have this area as a square and large areas also a square. So once you calculate all of those, you will get to the correct answer. And the correct answer is 30. Because there are 16 small squares, nine squares, which will be created using four small squares, four squares which can be created using nine small squares in one big square. So that when we come out with the answer 30. So you kind of have to know how to calculate it a little bit. But this question we see a lot as part of numerical reasoning tests, and psychometric tests. So I just want to make sure that you guys are prepared. Let’s look at another tricky question. Which one of the four are the least like the other three? And then we need to choose the correct answer. Tiger, cow, rabbit or deer? Which one do you think is right? The tricky part of this question is that all of this animals are mammals. But there are three animals cow rabbit and deer that eat grass. And Tiger is a predator. So the correct answer is A which is Tiger. So hopefully you’ve got this one, right? It’s a tricky one. And it tests your knowledge of exclusion, meaning that you need to read the test question correctly. And then you need to find out the correct choice. Hopefully, you’ve got this. Alright. I’d like to ask you to participate in our daily Excel assessment test challenge. I post new question every day in the community tab of this channel, and give you an opportunity to answer this and try it. And I post the answer in the comments next day. So please make sure to check it out and test your knowledge. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test. So here’s the question, which is frequently used as part of numerical reasoning and logical reasoning tests. Find the next number of the below sequence. And you have series of numbers 3020 920-724-2015. And you have a choices for different choices 10 911 and eight, which one do you think is right? And how would you even approach answering something like this?
The key to answer something like this, in this types of questions in general is to detect the pattern. So you see the pattern here is you increase the number every time you go from one number to the next 30 is one more than 29 and 27 is two more than 2924 is three more than 2720 is for more than 24 and 15 is five more than 20 so The next difference would be six, and 15 minus six would be nine. Let’s recap. So next number in the sequence is less than the current number 29 is less than 3027 is two less than 29. And 24 is three less than 27. And you can continue the sequence once you detect it. And final number must be six less than 15, which is nine. So the correct answer is B, which is nine. Hopefully, you’ll get this one right. Now let’s look at the question find the missing value using the pattern. You see the three by three box, and one of the values in this box is missing. So what is the pattern? And there are four choices. We have A, B, C and D, right? And obviously, you would have to find the pattern and calculate the value. So what do you guys think is the right answer here? Before I reveal the right answer, let me try to discuss with you the patterns. So you see one, two and three, right? But then this 124, and six, so it’s not sequential. So it’s not like you go one plus one equals two plus one equals three, there is a different type of pattern here. And the right pattern here is that one plus two equals three, right? And then two plus four equals six. And once you know the pattern, you can easily calculate that three plus six equals nine. So the right answer here is choisi. Let’s validate. And you’re absolutely made the right choices. Choice C, and this is exactly the logic that I just presented to you. Hopefully, you’ve got this unright. A lot of you are interested and asking me, How can I help others? One of the ways you can help other people is by sharing the latest questions that you see on Excel interview and assessment test, and how you answer them. Please share the questions you recently encountered in the comment section of this video. If you know the answers, please share them as well. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test. Now let’s look at the question which is frequently used as part of verbal reasoning, aptitude test and psychometric tests. If you rearrange the letters, C, I F AIP. C, you will have the name of an in there for choices, country, city, Ocean and river. So the tricky part of this question is that this are not the final answers. You can’t rearrange this set of letters to get to the country, you can’t rearrange it to get to the ocean letter or to any one of these letters. It is country meme, that would be a result of the three arrangement or ocean name that would be OCD name or river name. So let’s see if you can get this one correctly. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to prepare yourself for this types of questions. And the correct answer here is Pacific. So the answer is Pacific Ocean. Right. But there is no way for you to know this probably heard the term of Pacific Ocean. But the best practice to answer this types of questions would be to go and start with the smallest one and smallest one would be ocean, there are only very few oceans. And you probably much better off starting and going and counting through all this oceans that are available in one of those oceans would be Pacific Ocean. Because if you start to go with city, River and country, there are too many countries, too many cities and too many rivers. And the expectation is that you would not know all of this, and you can’t answer. So that’s the best way to come to this question is identify what is the smallest number of items that’s on the list and then loop through this items to identify the right one. So going back is Pacific Ocean is the answer. And hopefully you will have the tips and tricks to get this types of questions correctly.
Now let’s look at the question where you test that not just how well you know English, but also how well can you operate with the letters and take guesses based on the questions asked? A lot of times this types of questions used in the verbal reasoning tests and in a lot of other tests as well. For example psychometric tests or logic reasoning tests. This types of questions we see all the time. So the question, which of the following can be arranged to a five-letter English word in their four choices was five letters of the words and you kind of would need to look at each choice and you would need to take a guess which one would be the one which leads to a specific English word and obviously, nobody gives you the English word. So you would have to take a guess on the word and combine this letters. So they will be represented by the specific English word. So which one do you think is the right choice? A couple suggestions. Here you see choice A has inside of this letters, English word gold. So typically, it’s the wrong choice, because typically you wouldn’t be able to easily rearrange this word into something else, typically, and again, it’s only typically, but you would want to start with the letter somewhere in the middle. And the right choice here is choice B. And that’s the word shape. That’s really the word that the end result of it, you don’t have a way of knowing, right, because you don’t know what the end word is. So you would have to look realistically at all the different choices and see if you can combine them. But I would start with the middle letter has typically they try to trick you and first letter is typically not the one that starts this new word. So find more exercises like this. This one was tricky. This one was difficult. Very few people are guessing, right. But it takes practice to get this types of questions correctly. So make sure Google or find on the internet, this types of verbal reasoning questions and see if you can get better at this. Can I ask you to do me a favor? If you like the content, please give this video a big thumbs up to tell us that you need more content like this. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test. Let’s look at the question which tests your knowledge of logical reasoning, which has been frequently used as part of psychometric tests and aptitude tests. Which of the four is least like the other three? In your four choices? Car, bus, bicycle and van? Multiple different options here, you can arrange all this items by size by weight, or maybe by something else? Do you think you know the answer? And as you might have figured out the correct answer is C which is bicycle, because all of these four choices are vehicles, but three of them need fuel. So answer is the bicycle which doesn’t need fuel, which is not like all of the others. Hopefully, you’ll get this one, right.
So here’s the tricky question, which is frequently used as part of the logical reasoning tests in numerical reasoning tests. The day after the day after tomorrow is four days before Monday, what day is it today, you have four choices Sunday, Monday, Friday and Saturday. And the reason I’m laughing is that this tells me that you always should come to those types of tests, after a very good night’s sleep and try to schedule them in the morning. That’s the best advice I can give you. Because sometimes if you come to this type of test tired, you wouldn’t even understand what they’re asking you to do. So do you have an idea how to answer this? Let’s take a look at the answer. Again, most of the time, you have to use reverse method to get to the right answer. And the reverse method tells us that four days before Monday is Thursday, and day before day before Thursday is Tuesday. If Tomorrow is Tuesday, today’s Monday. So the correct answer is B Monday. Hopefully, you’ve got this one, right.
Now let’s look at another pattern type question. Which number should come next in the pattern? And then you have a pattern of numbers 112358 13. So let’s first determine what’s the pattern here. Obviously, there are four choices, but the result here is calculated based on the pattern that we would need to determine which one do you guys think is the right one here? Well, let’s look. So we have one, one, and then one plus one equals two, then one plus two equals three, then we have two plus three equals five, and then you can kind of keep going. So to calculate the next number, it’s basically the sum of the previous two numbers. So eight plus 13 is 21. So the right choice here is choice B, which is 21. And this is the explanation that the pattern here is really the sum of the previous two numbers. Hopefully, you’ve got the sun right. Now let’s look at the reasoning question where you need to complete the sentence, read below sentence and give the correct answer. Book is to reading as fork is two and then you need to pick one of the four choices, painting, writing, eating, and lifting. So what do you think is the right choice? I think it’s pretty obvious here. So but let’s look at the right answer. So the correct answer is obviously eating right because book is to reading this is an activity associated with reading as fork is to eating use fork during the meal consumption. So the correct choice is C. And that’s because forks are used during dining and meal consumption. Hopefully, you’ve got this one right. Why you might consider subscribing to this channel.

You have opportunity to help other people in you have experienced professionals who already subscribe to this channel, and ready to help you with any answers that you need. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test. Now let’s look at the question which tests your knowledge of numerical reasoning. A girl starts to run at the speed of five miles per hour. After a one hour, a boy starts to run a 10 mile per hour speed from the same location and going in the same direction. How long will it take for the boy to catch up was the girl and we have four choices here. One hour, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1.5 hours? What do you think is the right choice? The correct answer here is a one hour and here’s the reasoning. The boy has twice the girl’s speed. And for boys, it will only take half the time to run the same distance. Compare it to the girl. After an hour, girl already ran for five miles, and she will run another five miles in the next hour. Boy on the other hand will run 10 miles an hour, the girl will run 10 miles in two hours. And for the boy, it will take only one hour to run 10 miles. So boy, we’ll reach the girl in one hour. Hopefully, you’ve got this one right. Here is another tricky question that can confuse you easily during the test. Bob is six years old in his sister is half of his age, when Bob was 30 Would would be the age of his sister. And there are four choices 2015 25 and 27. Which one do you think is right? And obviously, as you might have figured out the correct answer is D 27. Bob’s sister is three when Bob is six, and Bob becomes 30 After 24 years, and that’s why his sister must be 27 years old. Another way to look at it, there is a three year difference. When Bob is 30. His sister would be 30 minus three, which would be 27. Hopefully you’ve got this one, right.
Here’s the question which tests your knowledge of working with negative numbers, calculate minus 100 plus 45. Here keep in mind that minus 100 is very tricky. Some people just don’t see this minus sign right before the 100. And there are four choices, minus 145 145 minus 55. And then 55. So what do you think is the right answer? And that is the correct answer is C, which is minus 55. The way, we calculate this equation is we can move minus 100 after 45. So the new equation might look like this 45 minuses 100, which would be exactly minus 55. Hopefully, you’ve got this on correctly as well. A lot of people ask how can I help on this channel? One of the best ways to help is to help other people answer the questions that they’re getting. If you know the answer to the question that you see in the comments, please post the answer in the comment section of this video. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test.
So let’s look at another tricky question. What number is the best match? And we have a two-four would be 10. Two question marks. So what do you think is the right one here? Let’s look at the answer. The best answer here is four is half of eight. So the question mark would be half of 10. And in that case, half of tennis five. So that’s the number you should choose. Now the tricky part of this question, some people may mistakenly select 20, which would be double 10. So make sure you recognize this and don’t make this mistake. Hopefully, you’ve got this one right. Now let’s look at the question which says the analogy of working with shapes, patterns and numbers. Select them arrow, which logically belongs in the rectangle was the question mark. Here on the screen, you see three by three boxes, each row of the box. In each column of the box has arrows, one arrow is missing. Which arrow do you think is missing? The key here is to identify the pattern. Each row in each column contains unique arrows. In the first row, we have an arrow pointing to the right, upper right, and then to the upper left, then upper left, right. And upper right. So here, we have the upper right, and then we have an arrow pointing to the upper left. And what’s missing is the arrow pointing to the right. And that would be the right answer and the arrow pointing to the right would be choice A and this is the explanation. So each row has three arrows. All three arrows are directed in three directions and they are unique. According to the pattern, the correct answer is A because the arrow which is directed to the right is missing in the third role. Hopefully, you’ll get this one right. So can you tell us how many questions did you answer correctly, please post in the comments of this video to share with others. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test. Now, let’s look at the very complex question which you see a lot during logical reasoning tests psychometric tests, and the numerical reasoning tests. Find the correct shape to continue the series. In what we have here, we have three by three matrix with eight shapes populated and one shape is missing. There are four choices as usual. But in order for you to calculate the right shape, you need to determine the pattern in In fact, there are two patterns here on the screen. Can you figure it out? Do you know what the right answer is? As I mentioned, there are two patterns here. One is there is a pattern for the shape, which shape would you choose. And the second pattern is the pattern for the lines. And where’s the right location for the line itself. Now let’s go through the detection of the shape pattern first. So the shape pattern is triangle, square, and then the circle, right, so triangle square, and the next one would be the circle. So we have a circle, that’s the right value here, but all of this other circle. So this was helpful, but not by much. But it just tells us that we are detecting the first pattern. And here if you want to confirm, we have square, circle, and then triangle. Now, the most important part here is to determine on which side of the shape the lens should be located. In what we have here, we have four locations, as you can see in the answer, one location on the top, right, left and bottom. So how would you know, where’s the right location for the circle shape? So let’s look closely here. And let’s detect the pattern here for the line location. The line location starts with the bottom right, and then top. So you see it’s going counterclockwise. If you imagined the clock was the clockwise rotation, then this would be counterclockwise. And let’s see if we correct it. And we have a pattern here. So we have the bottom right top, then we have the left bottom. So that still matches the counterclockwise pattern. And then we have left, bottom, right. So I think the missing shape here would be the one before the left, which would be on the top. So the right answer, in this case, would be a because here we have a circle that matches the circle’s pattern. And then we have lines located at the top. Let’s verify to confirm that. And as you can see, the correct answer is A. So let’s recap. There are two patterns you need to detect them this assignments, patterns for the shapes and pattern for the line location. Shapes are displayed in the particular order triangle square circle, that’s really the pattern for the shapes and pattern for lines are in counterclockwise order. So correct answer is A. Hopefully you’ve got this one right, you will see a lot of this types of questions in the assessment test.
Let’s look at the question, which is frequently used as part of numerical reasoning test an aptitude test, find the correct shape to continue the series, in your present was the three by three box, which contains multiple shapes in one shape is missing. In one of the boxes. There are four choices, can you detect which one is the correct one? Before I jump to the final answer, let me teach you how to detect patterns in these types of questions. There are three different patterns that we can see here. The first pattern is patterning the shapes, we have a circle, and triangle in the first row, we have a square and triangle in the second row. And then we have a square and circle in the third row. The second pattern here is the pattern of one shape inside of the other. So what you see here is that every row contains one shape inside of the other in the first row, it’s a triangle inside of the circle. In the second row, it’s the triangle inside of the square, in the third one is missing this pattern, which tells us that it should be the pattern of one shape inside of the other, which is not a big help, because both all of the four choices here do contain the shapes, one shape inside of the other. But let’s keep that comment. And let’s just jump to the third pattern. And the third pattern is the. in, the middle of the shape. So you see that every roll contains at least one shape where that is inside of the shapes that are one inside of the other. So knowing this information, we have choices A and D because we narrowed it down and recognize that we have to have a dot inside of the shape. Now, which one do you think is right? Knowing the first pattern we can exclude choice A because, in the third row, we have a combination of squares and circles. So the correct Choice is D because it matches all three patterns. We have a circle inside of the square. And then we have that in the middle. So the correct answer is D. Hopefully you’ve got this one, right? Can I ask you to do me a favour?

Thank you. And now let’s continue and get you ready for the test. Now let’s look at the question which is frequently used as part of numerical reasoning tests. What is the number that is one half of one-quarter of 1/10 of 800? And there are four choices 2012, five, and 10? How would you answer something like this? Let’s go ahead and take a look. To answer this question, you need to do operations in reverse. So 1/10 of 800 is 80. And then one-quarter of EDI is 20. And one half of 20 is 10. So the correct answer is D 10. And let’s recap. This is the explanation. To get to this answer you need to go and reverse 1/10 of 800 is at one quarter of 1820 in one half of 20 is 10. So the correct answer is D. Hopefully you’ve got this one right. Thanks for watching. Hope you have learned something and had fun at the same time. Please make sure to check out my other relevant videos.
