Each question in this section has a large rectangle with a picture or design. There is a small section of that picture hidden behind the rectangle with a question mark. The student should select the answer that best completes the picture.
In these questions the design of objects changes as the pictures go across the row. The student will need to determine how each of the objects is modified as they go from the first picture to the second picture in each row and, again, modified from the second picture to the third picture in, perhaps, a different way.
In these questions the design of objects changes as the pictures go across the row and down the columns. The student will need to determine sequences and patterns within the matrix and select the figure from the five available answers that will best complete the matrix.
Each question in this section has three pictures or designs on each row. The third picture in each row is created from combining the first two pictures. The student should select the picture from the five available answers that would be created when the first two pictures on that row are combined.
