## What Is the Cubiks Logiks Test?

Cubiks Logiks is a unique type of psychometric test that assesses your cognitive ability and aptitude for a variety of employers and positions.

Cubiks is split into 3 sub-sections: Numerical, Verbal and Abstract, each assessing different capabilities.

1) Cubiks Numerical Ability Test - assesses your ability to understand and correctly analyse statistical and numerical data, as well as your ability to make logical deductions.

2) Cubiks Verbal Ability Test – assesses your ability to understand, process and reason about written information, as well as your ability to evaluate arguments regarding this information.

3) Cubiks Diagrammatic/ Abstract Ability Test – assesses your ability to solve questions about non-verbal characteristics by analyzing, evaluating and correctly drawing logical inferences from diagrammatic data. In this type of test, you are required to identify patterns in a series of diagrams and infer the missing piece in that series.

On occasion you may be given one of these tests as an individual test with just one of the question types: numerical, verbal or abstract. These tests are at the Cubiks advanced difficulty level (see more about Cubiks difficulty levels below).

## What is Unique about Cubiks Tests

Cubiks Logik General Tests differ from many other aptitude tests in several domains:

1) There are only 2 difficulty levels - Intermediate and Advanced - no "Beginners" level.

The Intermediate level is considered easier but has more question sub-types in its numerical and verbal sub-sections.

Our practice materials for this level can be used to develop your basic numerical, verbal and abstract abilities before taking the Advanced level test.

2) Level of sophistication - There is a strong emphasis on logical and methodical ways of thinking.

In all 3 sub-sections of the test (Numerical, Verbal and Abstract) the questions are made to examine your ability to use formal logic, recognize patterns and pay attention to numerous small details simultaneously.

## Understanding Your Score Report and Test Results

Each of the 2 test-types (Advanced and Intermediate) is scored differently. Cubiks' system generates an automated score report which may be viewed both by you and your prospective employer.

In general, regardless of the scoring format, you should strive to place in the top 20% of test performers (usually presented as an 80th percentile score).

You can learn more about this in our guide on Cubiks Logiks Test Scoring.

## Cubiks Assessment Sample Questions

Since Cubiks tests come in 2 difficulty levels (intermediate and advanced) we're providing you with the opportunity to try each of the 3 test sections (numerical, verbal and abstract) at both levels.

You can jump ahead to the section which interests you the most:

### Cubiks Logiks Numerical Reasoning Practice

#### Advanced Question Format:

The test consist of questions in the form of tables and graphs with statistical and numerical data, about which you are asked to make calculations and/or draw logical inferences.

3-4 multiple choice questions follow each table or graph.

Your task will be to choose just one correct answer from a set of 6 possible answer options.

Let's try some examples:

Advanced Numerical Example Question:

*1 drive = £70   **£1 = 1.59 USD

If Spectra is to sell 5.7% more units in 2012 with a 12% increase in sale price and Arclight’s sales figures are to remain constant, how much more than Spectra will Arclight make, in US Dollars?

A) 90.84m
B) 92.62m
C) 138.93m
D) 147.27m
E) 156.34m
F) Cannot say

Answer & Explanation

✔️ The correct answer is (D) - 147.27

We're especially being asked to find the difference  between the \$ income of Arclight and Spectra.

I.e. (Arclight total revenue) - (Spectra total revenue) = ?

In order to solve this question we need to calculate the expected 2012 revenues for both Spectra and Arclight.

Spectra:

1) Number of units sold is expected to increase by 5.7%:

Units sold in 2011: 20 million

Units expected to be sold in 2012: 20x1.057 million units.

2) Unit price is expected to increase by 12%:

Price in 2011: £70

Expected price in 2012: £70*1.12 = £78.4

3) Expected revenue for Spectra in 2012:

(number of units sold)x(price per unit) =

(20x1.057) x (£70x1.12) = £1657.376 million

Arclight:

1) Number of units sold in 2012 is to remain the same as in 2011, which means 25 million units.

2) Unit price is also expected to remain the same, which means £70 per unit.

3) Expected revenues for Arclight in 2012:

25 million x £70 = £1750 million

Now, let's calculate the difference:

Arclight - Spectra =

£1750 million - £1657.376 million = £92.624 million

Remember, however, that we need to find the difference in dollars, not pounds. The conversion rate is noted below the chart.

If £1 = 1.59 dollars, then the expected difference in dollars is:

£92.624 million x 1.59 = 147.27 million dollars

Alternatively, you can find the company profits in dollars and subtract as follows:

Arclight: 25x£70x1.59 = 2782.5 million dollars

Spectra: (20x1.057)*(£70x1.12)x1.59 = 2635.23 million dollars

Difference = 2782.5 - 2635.23 = 147.27 million dollars

#### Intermediate Question format:

This version of the test confronts you with a large number of fairly simple maths questions in a short span of time.

These are multiple-choice questions with one correct answer from a set of 5 possible answer-options. The questions come in the following formats:

1) Mental arithmetic questions, which present you with an equation with a missing variable or arithmetic sign; you are required to decide which number or sign is missing.

2) Number series questions, which require you to correctly choose the next number in a series.

3) Word problems: which require you to solve mathematical problems based on short texts.

Intermediate Example Question:

Which number comes next in the sequence?

4, 8, 13, 19, 26

A) 19
B) 28
C) 32
D) 34
E) 40

Answer & Explanation

✔️ The correct answer is (D).

In this series the difference between the numbers is constantly growing by 1.

The difference between 19 and 26 is 7, so the next difference will be 8:

26 + 8 = 34

### Cubiks Verbal Reasoning Test Practice

#### Advanced Question Format

Cubiks verbal test questions consist of a few paragraphs of written information followed by 3-4 questions about this information.

The written texts are often related to the type of position or company you're applying to.

Some questions are explicit, meaning that the answer is stated directly in the text, while others are implicit, meaning that the answer is only implied from the text.

The test questions are multiple-choice with one correct answer from a set of 4 possible answer options.

Advanced Verbal Example Question:

Dada was an artistic and literary movement that originated in neutral Zurich, Switzerland in 1916 as a reaction to World War I and the ubiquitous nationalism that accompanied it, consisting of artists who rejected the logic, reason and aestheticism of modern Western society and traditional art by expressing nonsense, irrationality and anti-bourgeois protest in their work. The movement organized public gatherings and demonstrations and published art and literary journals to spread their anti-war, anti-art message. Dada was practised as the antithesis to traditional art—the focus on meticulously planned works of art shifted into incorporating chance into them, challenging artistic norms and questioning the role of the artist. The art techniques the movement used include collages, photomontages and cut-up techniques. Dada artists utilized readymade objects in their work, buying and presenting everyday items as art with only little manipulation. Using prefabricated objects encouraged the discourse of artistic creativity and the purpose of art in society. The Dada movement dissipated with the establishment of Surrealism, a movement that aspired to liberate thought, language, as well as human experience from the oppressive boundaries of rationalism and was influenced by the Freudian theories of the subconscious.

Which one of the following assumptions is definitely made in the passage?

A) Dada is known for its premeditated works of art.
B) Collages are considered a traditional method of art.
C) Surrealism is a more prominent movement compared to Dada.
D) Not all countries in Europe participated in World War I.

Answer & Explanation

✔️ The correct answer is (D)

Option (D) is the correct answer because it is stated in the passage that Dada originated in 'neutral Zurich, Switzerland', which means Switzerland did not take part in World War I.

Therefore, it can be inferred that not all countries in Europe participated in World War I.

Option (A) is incorrect because the passage states Dada was practiced as the antithesis to traditional art- it was based on chance, rather than meticulous planning.

Option (B) is incorrect because it cannot be assumed that collages are considered a traditional method of art.

Dada is stated in the passage as the antithesis to traditional art and as a movement that used collages as art techniques. Therefore, it is more likely to assume collages are not considered traditional methods of art.

Nevertheless, a definite assumption regarding the relationship between collages and traditional art cannot be made based on the passage.

Option (C) is incorrect because, even though it is mentioned in the passage that the Dada movement dissipated with the establishment of Surrealism.

It cannot be assumed it resulted from the prominence of Surrealism over the Dada movement.

#### Intermediate Question Format

This test has 3 main types of questions based on short texts or sets of words. Each type gives you 5 answer options from which to choose one correct answer.

1) Antonym questions – Here you'll be given a word and required to choose the word that signifies its opposite.

You may also be given a set of words that share a common rule and asked to pick-out the word that is the exception to that rule. This type of question is called 'odd-one-out'.

2) Syllogism questions – You'll be given several statements and then asked to choose the correct logical conclusion drawn from them.

3) Verbal analogies - Here you'll be given a pair of related words and you'll need to figure out the relationship between them.

Then, you'll be given another single word and asked to choose a word from the answer options that upholds the same logic (e.g. clouds are to rain what volcanoes are to___?)

Intermediate Verbal Example Question:

Some of Josh’s shoes are blue.
None of Josh’s shoes are green.

If the two statements are true, what is the most logical conclusion?

A) All of Josh’s shoes are not green.
B) Some of Josh’s shoes are orange.
C) None of Josh’s shoes are black.
D) None of the above.

Answer & Explanation

✔️ The correct answer is (A)

(A) is correct because it is a rewording of the second statement. If “None of Josh’s shoes are green,” then “All of Josh’s shoes are not green.”

(B) is incorrect because no information is provided about whether Josh has orange shoes.

(C) is incorrect because no information is provided about whether Josh has black shoes.

Therefore, the correct answer is (A).

### Cubiks Logiks Abstract/Diagrammatic Reasoning Practice

Both Cubiks Advanced and Intermediate Abstract Ability Tests have essentially the same question types.

The only difference between the to tests is the level of difficulty.

#### Question Format:

You'll be presented with a series of diagrams in a row with a logical pattern that governs its progression.

You'll then be required to recognize and choose the missing 6th diagram in the series based on that pattern (out of 5 different answer options).

Note:  Sometimes the advanced level version can present you with a question that has more than 5 patterns in it (the number of patterns in the Intermediate level questions is always 5).
