Quick Reference

A type of intelligence test item requiring logical thinking, usually presented in the form A is to B as C is to, sometimes followed by a number of alternatives from which a selection must be made, the right answer in this example being D. Another easy example is Bird is to air as fish is to, the right answer being water. A typical hard example with response alternatives is: C is to X as F is to (M, U, L, V, or H). Although arguments could be developed to justify various answers, the ‘right’ answer to this item is U, because C and X are three letters from either end of the alphabet, and F and U are six letters from either end.
