'Mechanical, Spatial & Abstract Reasoning' provides an overview of key principles relating to mechanical, spatial and abstract thought.

The aim is to facilitate the following learning outcomes.

+ Identify individual elements within a group of elements;

+ Identify a rule connecting a set of figures;

+ Complete a number of test questions by applying a rule connecting a set of figures;

+ Apply techniques aimed at increasing the speed at which logical rules are generated (the faster a person generates solutions, the higher the probability of a correct answer-in a given period of time);

+ Increase the number of elements a person can keep track of in responding to an item (span capacity). Someone with a larger span capacity than someone else can take into account more figures without making errors and hence has a larger probability of a correct answer.

Mechanical, Spatial and Abstract Reasoning ability is a key element in identifying aspects of person's general intelligence. That is why the vast majority of psychometric tests will have a component that relates to abstract and spatial reasoning.
This ebook will provide a measure of eductive ability or fluid intelligence which is relatively independent of specific learning acquired in a particular cultural or educational context.

body. Q6  Which tree will fall to the right? A   A The tree falls when its centre of gravity (COG) overhangs the base of the tree. If pushed in the direction of the small cut, the lower trunk supports the upper trunk before the COG hangs over. Q7  Which pendulum swings the fastest? C   C The time for a complete swing of a pendulum depends on the length of the string, but not on the weight of the bob. Q8  Wheel A is driven clockwise as shown. Which of the following statements is true?

Which of the following statements is true? A   the liquid will start to move either clockwise or anticlockwise at random Hot liquids are less dense than cold liquids so they rise. If the circular tube is heated in the centre, as shown, you can’t predict in which direction the liquid will go round. However, if the flame was off centre, the liquid would always go round in one direction. Q14 Shaft S is rotated clockwise as shown. Which of the following statements is true? A   A turns

percentages, a score of 17 out of 34 would mean that the candidate got 50% of the questions correct. When dealing in percentiles a score of 17 out of 34 may equate to 80 percentile. This means that 20 % of the candidates who did the test got a better mark than 17; 80% of the candidates got a mark lower than 17.
