I’ve taken this exam as a requirement for a job. Unfortunately, I forgot what the exam was called. All I can remember is that the exam has 100 items grouped into five or four. Each group of five or four questions contains numerical, logical, and vocabulary questions. The questions look something like this:

Something that you use when raining
U, S, G, C, M (Umbrella)

A small explosive thrown by hand
G, C, W, J, Z (Grenade)

An apple costs $2.50.
If you have 10,how many can you buy?

4, 5, 6, 4.5, 5.5

Complete the series: 1, 2, 4, 7, 11, 16, ?
22, 21, 20, 23, 24

1 Answer 1


It an Intelligence test which was not well designed based off Spearmen's work. Performance evaluations like this can lead to promotion if you score well. If you find a correlation exists in the organization I suggest you take multiple intelligence tests multiple times to learn the testing methods of questions to score better.
