3. D
The relation is the same figure rotated to the right.
4. B
The relation is the number of dots is one-half the number of sides.
5. C
The pattern is the same figure with a dot inside.
6. A

## 10 thoughts on “Test your IQ”

1. Shouldn’t the answer to #3 be C instead of D? C is the same shape rotated right, whereas D has dotted lines, making it different from the original.

1. D is the correct answer. The dotted lins show the cut out view ‘behind’ the figure that you wouldn’t see. Without the dotted lines, (choice C) the figure is in relief.

2. C is actually a rotation that is not 90 degrees. The face of the rectangle is along a diagonal which isn’t in line with D that is a direct 90 degree rotation clockwise.

2. Please re-think number 3. How does tilting original figure to the right automatically reveal the dotted lines ?

3. #3 the example shows an oval turned on its side. no magic lines connecting anything in the rear. if that’s the case than the answer on 3 should be C because you’re simply rotating the image. there are no lines to show what it looks like behind the surface. so D is not the correct answer.

4. May be a bit late, but I would also recommend a re-think of how you present #3. I understand your reasoning for D being the correct answer, but you do not state in the question anywhere that ONLY dotted lines can represent the sides behind the figure. Should you have stated that then #3’s answer is obviously D; however, without that specification C is not necessarily wrong as without the specification of it being in relief being known to the test-taker, the taker can not possibly know that figure C is in relief.
This confusion is a by-product of a 2D representation of 3D objects without clear specifications regarding their orientation. The question needs clarification in order for D to be the only correct answer.

1. I totally agree with this. If they are saying the dotted lines are correct, the dotted lines should’ve been present in the example.
