What Is the SHL Verify Interactive?

The SHL Verify Interactive G+ is the interactive version of the SHL General Ability Test (G+).

As opposed to the non-interactive version, in which you are presented with a multiple-choice question and required to choose the correct one, on the Interactive Verify G+ test you will be actively engaging with the test by typing your answers, connecting nodes, dragging and dropping, and so on.

It contains 24 questions to be solved in 36 minutes.

Questions in the SHL Verify Interactive Test are evenly distributed between 3 categories (8 questions each):

  • Numerical - An assessment of your ability to understand, analyze, and draw logical conclusions from quantitative data presented in the form of numbers, charts, graphs, or tables. The main focus of these questions is dealing with interactive, complex tables and graphs.
  • Inductive - An assessment of your ability to recognize patterns, make generalizations, and draw conclusions based on specific evidence or observations. On these kinds of questions, you will need to interact and experiment with rules applied to abstract shapes.
  • Deductive - An assessment of your ability to use general rules or principles to make specific conclusions or predictions. Interactive deductive questions will require you to rank or organise schedules and calendars by dragging and dropping.

It is no coincidence that 1.5 minutes are given per question (an eternity in the world of psychometric testing), as the questions on the SHL Verify Interactive Assessment are sophisticated, elaborate, and complex.

SHL Verify Interactive Sample Questions and Answers

Here is one sample question for each category of the SHL Verify G+ Interactive Test:


  • SHL Verify Interactive G+ Sample Question - Numerical

SHL numerical test sample question
Answer and Explanation

Pretty similarly to question #3 in this guide – this one is a classic case of systems of equations used to find several variables.

In this case, we have 6 variables – let’s arrange them in a table for convenience:

Variable Region Method
NR Northern Referrals
NC Northern Cold Calls
NI Northern Client-Initiated
SR Southern Referrals
SC Southern Cold Calls
SI Southern Client-Initiated

Note: This table is for the sake of explanation only. During the real test, don’t spend time arranging it, and simply name the variables as is most convenient for you.

Out of the 4 data items, the first and last ones on the list are the best place to start, as they can immediately reveal the number of clients in each method.

Let’s dismantle these pieces of data to their components:

A total of 540 new clients were acquired this year

Referrals accounted for 1/3 of all new clients



Therefore, Cold Calls and Client-Initiated account for the remaining 2 thirds of new clients:


Cold Calls + Client-Initiated = 540 - 180  = 360

Using the last bit of information - Cold Calls accounted for twice as many as Client-Initiated:

2 (Client-Initiated) + Client-Initiated = 360

Client-Initiated = 120 Clients

Cold Calls = 240 Clients

So, we can now rearrange the graph as:

SHL Numerical sample question answer

Tip: The pale grey line above the graph means that you are able to change the value below the line. In this case, the total value of all bars can be changed, but the division of Client Initiated between Northern (60%) and Southern (40%) is pre-determined.


Now, let’s form some other equations using the other data items.

We should try and focus on data items containing the least variables. Data item 2 is the best for this purpose:

The Northern region produced 40% more Referrals than the Southern region.

Or in the form of an equation:

(I) NR = 1.4 x SR

We already know the total number of referrals:

(II) NR + SR = 180

Plugging (I) into (II):

2.4 x SR = 180

SR = 75

NR = 105

Converting to percentages (Don’t forget that!):


And again, we can rearrange the graphs as:

SHL numerical test question answer

It is time to approach the last piece of information – data item 2:

The Southern region produced 84 more clients through cold calls than those that were Client Initiated.

Or in the shape of an equation:

SC = SI + 84

Since we already know the percentages in the Client-Initiated bar, we can easily deduce SI:

SI = 0.4 x 120 = 48

Plugging into the previous equation:

SC = 48 + 84 = 132

Again, converting into percentages:


And rearranging the graph to its final position:

SHL numerical test question answer

The SHL Interactive Verify G+ is loaded with tricks and pitfalls which you will not be aware of until the actual test:

  • What's the meaning of the grey lines on bar graphs?
  • How can 4-variable pie chart questions be solved with only 3 equations?
  • How will SHL try to distract you with vague question phrasing?

Answer and Explanation

In this question, the given connected nodes are AZ -> 19 -> BY and a dashed arrow instructing you to connect BY to 28.

As can be seen, each node containing letters is connected to a node containing a two-digit number, starting with the AZ node.

AZ – 19: AZ is made of the two letters from opposite extremes of the alphabet; A is the first letter in the alphabet, and Z is the last letter. Following a similar pattern, 1 is the smallest number in the group of nodes, while 9 is the biggest number in the group of nodes.

BY – 28: B is the second-from-the-beginning letter and Y is the one-before-last letter in the alphabet, 2 is the second small number, while 8 is the second biggest number, from the top, in the group of nodes.

CX – 37: C is the third-from-the-beginning letter and X is the two-before-last letter, 3 is the third small number, while 7 is the third biggest number, from the top, in the group of nodes.

And so forth.

  • SHL Verify Interactive G+ Sample Question - Deductive

Place each worker in the correct room at 2:30 p.m.

  • When there isn’t a scheduled activity, workers are at their desks.
  • Phone calls are made in the conference room.
  • Lunch is eaten in the dining area, and breaks are taken on the balcony.
SHL Deductive Reasoning Sample Question Answer Options Interactive Version
Answer and Explanation

In this question, you are presented with information regarding four workers at your office. You can see their activities and the time they occur. Different activities take place in various parts of the office.

You are given a specific time and need to locate the position of each worker during that time. The picture of each worker appears on a location pin, and you need to drag it to the correct position on the office’s map.

In the sample question, you need to place the workers at 2:30 p.m., meaning you need to understand where each worker was at 2:30.

You can see that Amanda is on a break at 2.30 p.m. According to the given information, breaks are taken on the balcony meaning Amanda is on the balcony.

Josh is having a phone call from 10:30 to 11:00 am. There is no information regarding his location at 2.30 p.m. meaning he has no activity scheduled for this time. According to the given information when there isn’t a scheduled activity, workers are at their desks. Josh is at his desk at 2:30.

Steven is eating lunch from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. Lunch is eaten in the dining area, meaning at 2:30 p.m. steven is at the dining area.

Rachel has a meeting from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Meaning she is in the meeting room at 2:30 p.m.
