ADF YOU Session Question Categories

The Aptitude Evaluation consists of two tests:

General Ability Test: 75 questions (30 minutes)
Mathematical Ability Test: 25 questions (12 minutes)

All test questions are multiple-choice questions with only one correct answer.

During the tests you will be provided with pencils, an eraser, and writing paper. You cannot use calculators, books or other aids during your test.

Question categories of the General Ability Test:

Arithmetic Questions

Contain many different types of arithmetic questions, mostly arithmetic word problems.

Number Series

You are required to find the missing number in a series of numbers. The logic behind the questions is mostly mathematical.

Number Rows

You must find the missing number in a simple table containing two rows and six columns.

Word Code

You are given a coded message as well as the same message decoded. You are then given another coded message and must decode it.

Deductive Reasoning

Deductive reasoning questions will require you to use your problem-solving and reasoning skills to evaluate arguments and draw logical conclusions.
For deductive reasoning questions, you must draw conclusions based only on the information given in the question and not your own knowledge. If the conclusion cannot be drawn from the information given, then the conclusion does not follow.
You will be presented with a list of (usually 5) statements. You are required to find the two statements that together will allow you to reach a certain conclusion.

Word Meanings

Word Meaning questions require that you find the connection between a list of words.

Word Analogy

In the Word Analogy questions the reader is to hypothesize the relationship between the two example words and then find the best match between the option words.

Abstract Reasoning

Find the figure that complete the series of figures.

Odd one out

You are shown 5 or 6 shapes/items and you are required to identify the rules and similarities between them, in order to find the correct answer. You will be asked to find either one or two items that does not belong with the rest.

Mathematical Ability Test

The Mathematical Ability Test has no named categories but contain a series of questions to measure your understanding of more advanced mathematical concepts relevant to technical trade training, such as algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as more basic arithmetic questions.

All the question categories described above are included in our test prepartion software. In the software you will be introduced to each type of question one at a time.

Our preparation software not only contain practice questions but also an interactive Study Guide for the Mathematical Ability test.
