Level G Figure Matrices

Figure Matrix questions are either 2×2 or 3×3 matrices composed of different pictures.
In each row and column, the images change the same way or follow the same rule.
Choose an answer that goes in the empty box in the matrix following the same rule.

CAT4 Level G Free Sample Question

The correct answer is 4.
In this question, the pictures consist of varying shapes with various levels of black fill and white circles in the middle.

There are 3 different patterns: one for the shapes, one for the level of black fill and one for the white ring inside.

– Each line (left to right and up and down) has 3 shapes: SHIELD, HEART, and CIRCLE.
– Left to right or up to down, each shape is filled, half-filled, and a quarter filled with black.
– Top to down – the first-row whole heart has a circle in (1 shape), the second-row full shield and half-filled shield have circled in (2 shapes), and the third row all 3 shapes have a circle.

Based on the shape pattern, the missing picture should be a heart, thus eliminating answers 1, 2 and 5.
Based on the colour fill and circle inside, we need a quarter-filled heart with a white ring inside, so a filled heart under nr3 is out.

The only remaining possible answer is 4.

Figure Classification Sample Question

The Figure Classification questions show three pictures that share a connection or a characteristic.
Choose the answer that shares the same connection/characteristic from the answer choices.


The correct answer is 3.
In this question, the pattern is as follows:
• Each picture contains a big figure with two smaller white figures.
• The small figures are always – one INSIDE and one OUTSIDE the big figure.
• The two small figures are always aligned on horizontal or vertical lines.
Answers 1 and 5 have one white and one small black figure, automatically excluding these answers.
Answer 4 has two small white figures, but both are inside the bigger figure.
Answer 2 does have two small figures, one inside and one outside, the bigger shape, but they do not align vertically or horizontally.
We are left with 3 as the only possible correct answer.
