### What is the Revelian Cognitive Ability Test (RCAT)?

The Revelian cognitive ability test is a timed multiple-choice test that measures your general cognitive ability.

The test includes **51 questions** to be answered within a time limit of **20 minutes**.

In the Revelian cognitive ability test, there are no penalties for wrong guesses, so making calculated guesses are encouraged rather than skipping some questions.

It is possible to go back and forward through the questions. It is, therefore, a good idea to answer the easy questions first and then go back to finish the more difficult ones.

Calculators are **not** allowed in the test.

Here, we will cover what you need to know about the RCAT.

At Aptitude-test.com we offer comprehensive practice materials for the Revelian Cognitive Ability Test.

### What questions can I expect in the RCAT?

The questions are divided into three main categories: Verbal reasoning, abstract reasoning, and numerical reasoning. There are 17 questions in each category. These categories are explained in detail below:

### Abstract reasoning questions

The abstract reasoning questions in the RCAT will assesses your ability to solve conceptual problems by identifying relationships and analyzing patterns.

You will be presented with 5 – 6 graphical elements. You have to identify patterns in these elements in order to find the one or two elements that are different from the rest.

**Abstract reasoning example question:**

**Explanation:**

The correct answer is item A and D. In all other items, the two circles are located within the star.

### Verbal reasoning questions

Verbal reasoning questions assess your ability to accurately read and comprehend English. You will be required to find relationships between words, identify synonyms and antonyms, and draw logical conclusions from given statements.

These four types of verbal questions can be found in the RCAT:

**Word Analogy**

You must identify the relationship between the first pair of words in order to find the missing word in the second pair.

**Synonyms and Antonyms**

These questions are used to determine the extent of your vocabulary. You are given two words and you must decide if they are synonyms, antonyms or neither.

**Deductive Reasoning**

Deductive reasoning is the process of reasoning using one or more statements to reach a logically certain conclusion.

You will be presented with a list of (usually 5) statements. You are now required to find the two statements that together will allow you to reach a certain conclusion.

**Odd word out**

You are given a list of words and have to find one or two words that do not belong with the rest.

**Odd word out example question:**

Identify the word that does not belong with the others:

**Explanation:**
*Select your answer to display explanation.*

The odd one out is Carrot. This is because Apple, Banana, and Orange are all fruits, while Carrot is a vegetable.

### Numerical reasoning questions

Numerical reasoning questions assess your ability to understand numerical relationships and concepts, and your ability to reason using numbers. These three types of numerical questions can be found in the RCAT:

**Numerical word problems**

Numerical Word Problems, simply called math word problems, are mathematical questions presented verbally.

**Number series**

You will be presented with a series of numbers with one number missing. You need to find the missing number.

**Number matrices**

You will be presented with a 3 x 3 matrix with numbers. You have to find the number that is represented by a question mark.

**Number matrices example question:**

Find the missing number in the matrix.

?

256

**Explanation:**
*Select your answer to display explanation.*

The missing number is 64. The logic of the matrix is as follows:

Each number in the first column is raised to the power of the column number to get the corresponding number in that row.

In the first row, 2 raised to the power of 2 (column number) is 4, and 2 raised to the power of 3 is 8.

In the second row, 3 raised to the power of 2 is 9, and 3 raised to the power of 3 is 27.

Following this pattern, in the third row, 4 raised to the power of 2 is 16, and 4 raised to the power of 3 is 64. Thus, the missing number is 64.

- You should not spend too much time on any one question. If you are not close to an answer after about 60 seconds, take a guess and move on.
- If you do not know the answer to a question, or if you find yourself taking too much time on any one question, you should guess at the answer rather than leave it unanswered. There is
**no**penalty for wrong answers. - Use scratch paper and a pen or pencil to assist you; it will help you keep track of your calculations.
