The Revelian Abstract Reasoning Test specialises in discovering how well you work with theoretical problems. For example, you will be asked to detect relationships between shapes, scrutinise patterns and assess diagrams.

It will be your job to go through as many of the 32 problems as you can in the 10-minute time constraint.

Let's jump into practising some abstract sample questions:

Basic Question

Which 2 of the items below do not belong with the others?
Revelian Sample question 1
Answer & Explanation

✔ The correct answer is (B) and (E).

All the items except item (B) and (E) have identical counterparts:

(A) and (F) are identical.

(C) and (D) are identical.

Items (B) and (E) are the only ones that do not have identical counterparts.

Advanced Question

Which 2 of the items below do not belong with the others?
Revelian Sample Question 2
Answer & Explanation

✔ The correct answer is (B) and (C).

Items (A), (D), (E), and (F) all contain shapes who have a total of 12 sides, when you count the sides of all of the shapes in a given item.

For example, item (E) contains a single shape with 12 sides.

Same thing goes for item (A), which contains 3 shapes – one with 4 sides, one with 3 sides, and one with 5 sides.

When you add the number of sides in all of the shapes, you will find there is a total of 12 sides in the item.

(3 + 4 + 5 = 12)

The same is true of items (D) and (F).

Items (B) and (C), however, have a different number of sides:

Item (B) contains a total of 13 sides (10 + 3 = 13).

Item (C) contains a total of 19 sides (4 + 7 + 8 = 19).

Revelian Numerical Reasoning Test 

 revelian numerical reasoning

 25 questions

 12 min

 No penalty for wrong answers | Revising answers is possible | Calculator is not allowed

The goal of this test is to measure how well you can analyse and solve numerical problems. This test is mainly used for numerical-based professions. The test consists of 25 questions within a 12-minute window. Unlike other cognitive ability tests, the questions in this type of test are open-ended.

Many Revelian questions are set in a number series format. Typically the tests are presented in numerical lines or a matrix (a 3 by 3 table).

Let's start practising a few numerical sample questions:

Basic Question

Billy has been driving for 4 hours. If Billy has driven 140 km, what has Billy’s average driving speed been?

________ km/h


Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is 35 km/h.

Average Speed = Distance / Time.

So, Average Speed = 140km / 4h = 35 km/h.

Therefore, the correct answer is 35 km/h.

Advanced Question

What is the missing number that should take the place of the question mark? 

10  |  19  |  33  |  52  |  ?  |  105

Answer & Explanation

✔ The correct answer is 76.

10 + 9 = 19 →
19 + 14 = 33 →
33 + 19 = 52


The number being added increases by 5 (+9, +14, +19) each time.

If 19 was added to 33 to get 52, then 19 + 5 = 24 was added to 52 to get ? → 76

[ 52 + 24 = 76 ]

To confirm that this is the pattern, continue with the other number → 76 24 + 5 = 29. 76 + 29 = 105.

That is why the correct answer is 76.
