When trying to work out the matrices in this 11-Plus Non-Verbal Reasoning quiz, look for the position of the shapes.
Each of the questions has three shapes in a matrix. The shapes all have something in common and you must find the shape from the four on the right which completes the three on the left. The pattern might be with the shape above it, below it, beside it, or all three. The reason shapes are similar might be to do with position, reflection, rotation, shading or the number of shapes a figure is made of. The best way to approach these quizzes is to look at the figures carefully, pick out one feature which appears in the matrix shape, and find that feature in one of the figures on the right. An example question has been done for you.
Edward de Bono, the Maltese physicist and inventor, tells us that, "Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way." Some of these quiz questions need you to do just that.
