The cut-e scales ix Inductive Reasoning Test is a logic test by Aon, usually taken alongside the AON Numerical Reasoning Aptitude Test and the AON Verbal Reasoning Aptitude Test.

This Discover Rules test might seem the easiest of the Aon assessments; however, unlike other aptitude tests such as verbal and numerical, this test doesn't rely on previous knowledge but on your natural inductive abilities. Therefore, it's essential to familiarize yourself with these kinds of questions beforehand.

The following guide includes all the information you need to ace the Aon scales ix Inductive Reasoning Test, including structures, tips, and sample questions.

## What Is the Discover Rules – cut-e scales ix Test?

The cut-e scales ix is an abstract reasoning test that assess your ability to recognize patterns and discrepancies and interpret relationships in given data.

It belongs to a category of logic tests, which includes the scales cls (AON Inductive-logical Reasoning), clx (AON Inductive Reasoning), scales lst (AON Deductive-logical Thinking), scales lct (Learning Efficiency), and switchChallenge (AON Deductive Reasoning).

The test consists of 20 questions to be solved in 5 minutes. In each question, you will be presented with a series of 9 objects containing shapes, symbols, lines, etc. Your task is to recognize the pattern of the series and identify the object that doesn't fit the rule of the pattern.

## Discover Rules – cut-e scales ix Sample Questions

#### scales ix Sample Question #1

Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule

View Explanation

The correct answer is object #7.

The objects form a formal series. All objects contain 3 shapes of different types (a trapezoid, a square and a triangle), one inside the other. When moving from one object to the next one in the series, the outer shape becomes the inner shape, the middle shape becomes the outer shape, and the inner shape becomes the middle shape.

The only object that does not fit this rule is object #7, in which the inner shape is a square instead of a triangle and the middle shape is a triangle instead of a square.

#### scales ix Sample Question #2

Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule

View Explanation

The correct answer is object #3.

The objects form a formal series. All objects contain a ‘V’ shape surrounded by 4 lines cutting across each other. In each object, one of the intersection points is missing. When moving from one object to the next one in the series, the missing intersection shifts one corner anti-clockwise.

The only object that does not fit this rule is object #3, as it has the top-right intersection missing instead of the bottom-right.

Note: The 90°-clockwise movement of the ‘V’ shape is kept throughout the entire series, and thus cannot be the key for solving the question; it only serves as a distraction.

#### scales ix Sample Question #3

Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule

View Explanation

The correct answer is object #7.

All objects conform to the following rule (regardless of their order): Each object contains a small shape located outside a big shape.
The only object that does not fit this rule is object #7, in which the small shape is located inside the big shape.

As you can see in the sample questions above, the differences between the 9 (!) answering options are not so easy to find. Imagine facing 20 similar questions to answer in only 5 minutes.

This is why practice is so important when it comes to the Discover Rules test – with every practice, you will learn how to find the rules within the tight time framework, and our detailed reports and explanations will help you improve.

## What Is an Inductive Reasoning Test?

The cut-e scales ix is an inductive reasoning test that evaluate your ability to discover rules and patterns. This ability indicates your non-verbal reasoning thinking skills and provides an insight into your way of thinking, induction of information and approach when presented with new situations. This ability is necessary for a wide range of jobs, from project managers and lawyers to technical support engineers and communication officers.

Many companies use the AON assessment as a pre-hiring tool, including Morgan Stanley, UBS, Procter & Gamble, and Credit Suisse.

## Discover Rules – cut-e scales ix Test Tips

• Avoid guessing – the test’s score is determined by the number of correct answers and deducted for incorrect ones. Thus, if you can’t figure it out, you better move on and not randomly choose an answer.
• Keep on moving – Not everyone manages to complete all 20 tasks within 5 minutes. If you can’t identify the correct answers, you can go forward to the next task, and if you have enough time, you can revisit them later.
• Pay attention to the details – the key to acing the test is in the fine details. Pay attention to all the recurring elements in the series to discover its rule.
