The PI LI test system makes you work your way through 10 pages, each containing five questions. These questions are a mixture of four different subjects.

Sample Question Types on the PI LI

Visual Analogies

This section of the test consists of questions featuring various shapes that have some kind of relationship to each other. For example, you may be presented with one large and one small triangle whose relationship is that one is large and the other is small. You are then presented with another shape and asked to choose from a list of five options its matching shape. For example:

Number Series

The questions on this section of the test examine your ability to accurately determine the next number in a sequence. The following is an example question:

1 | 3 | 4 | 6 | 7 | 9 | ?

In the above example, you are asked to determine the last item in the sequence. You have to select the correct choice from the answer possibilities on the right. There are a few different types of numerical sequences you may encounter on this test. To determine the number missing from these sequences, there are several different kinds of mathematic functions you have to perform:

  • Addition and subtraction: The sequence either increases or decreases. This can occur simply in which each number of the sequence has a fixed amount added or subtracted from it, or it can be more complex in which multiple additions with different numbers are used.
  • Multiplication: Every subsequent number in the series is multiplied by either a fixed number or a variable of it. For example, every number is multiplied by the previous number in the sequence.
