CCAT Sample Questions

Question 1

Select the next number in the pattern:

2, 6, 10, 30, 34, ?

A. 37
B. 42
C. 60
D. 64
E. 102

The correct answer is E.

This series will alternately multiply by 3 and then add 4 to get to the next number. Therefore, the next number in the series will be 34 X 3=102
2,     6,       10,     30,      34,      102
    *3     +4        *3      +4        *3

Question 2  

The pictures in the box go together in a certain way. Something belongs in the empty space. Choose the picture that should go in the empty space.




The correct answer is C.

In the above matrix (from left to right):

  • Across the rows: The black stars rotate clockwise around the smiley face. The horizontal line in each box alternates between resting above or below the smiley face.
  • Down the columns: The black stars increase by one and the horizontal lines continue to alternate. The correct answer will follow the above patterns.

That is answer choice C.

Criteria Test Tips

Here are some helpful tips that may help you during your criteria test.

  • Do not spend too much time on any one question, skipping difficult questions is allowed.
  • If you find yourself stuck, guess. Guessing does not take off points and it’s certainly better than leaving a question unanswered.
  • Pay attention to the answer choices. Sometimes ruling out unreasonable answers can prove to be an effective problem-solving strategy.
