This is a short pilot aptitude test

Basically, there are logic and math questions, not too difficult.
But, there is one that I don't know the logic of the answer.
Question is:

Which one would you choose and why?

5, because the rest have the same number of sides as items - so 5 pentagons, 4 diamonds etc.

Nice.
Now, what's the purpose of this question for the future pilot?

It's an IQ test type of question, it's debatable if they have any purpose

Maybe to make sure pilots don't confuse highway and the runway?

It is just a procedure to eliminate the number of contenders.

Could be two answers: #1, since it's the only one that has one object not in formation. Numbers 2 through 5 all have objects that are arranged symmetrically. Or it could be #3, since it's the only one whose objects don't point in a northernly direction.

Number 5 is right (I got 70 out of the 80 required only because the by phone rang during the last couple) - and reason for the question - to test deductive reasoning ability?

You will not be a pilot.

I stand corrected!

Nigels post#2 gives the correct reason why.
There's a currently running quiz show in the UK, called "The 1% Club", and essentially all the questions are IQ type questions. I've been watching it, so I'm probably a bit better prepared

I never joined MENSA, as I had no interest in it, but my younger brother did.

I think MENSA should join you.
