## SHL numerical test example

On SHL's numerical reasoning tests you are likely to encounter a series of questions that relate to a certain chart or table. The difficulty level of the following sample questions is considered easy, so it should take you no longer than 50 seconds to solve each question.

Income/Expense data of a Single Household

Note: Profit can be negative.

a) In which of the following years were profits the highest?

1) 1993   2) 1996   3) 1997   4) 1999

Explanation:

Profit equals income minus expenses. In this question we don't have to calculate the exact profit, it is enough to examine the distance between the consecutive line (the income) and the broken line (the expenses), by counting the squares.

Answer 1: In 1993 the distance between the lines is of 6 squares. There is a profit of 6 squares.

Answer 2: In 1996 the distance between the lines is of 7 squares. There is a loss of 7 squares.

Answer 3: In 1997 the distance between the lines is of 6 squares. There is a loss of 6 squares.

Answer 4: In 1999 the distance between the lines is of 10 squares. There is a profit of 10 squares.

In conclusion, the highest profit (considering the options given in the answers) was in 1999.

b) In which of the following years were incomes and expenses equal?

1) 1990    2) 1998    3) 1994   4) Answers (2) and (3) are correct

Explanation:

We're looking for two dots that overlap (that is one dot that represents both the income and the expenses). There is only one: in 1998.

Note

We are not looking for a cutting point between the lines, since the lines themselves have no meaning. The figures were examined once a year and not continuously and so we can't know what were the income and expenses during 1994. For this reason answer (3) is incorrect and so is answer (4).

c) What is the
accumulative profit between the years 93' - 95'?

1) £10,000     2) £20,000     3) £110,000    4) £40,000

Explanation:

We will count the squares, with every square representing £10,000:
→ In 1993, profit was £60,000 (6 squares)
→ In 1994, loss was £30,000  (3 squares)
→ In 1995, loss was £20,000  (2 squares)

Altogether, profit was £10,000 (60,000 - 30,000 - 20,000). Therefore, the correct answer is (1).
