Cubiks Test Overview

Cubiks Logiks is a psychometric evaluation specifically crafted to assess cognitive capabilities and suitability for a diverse array of employers and job positions. Cubiks provides two distinct tiers of cognitive assessments:

  • Cubiks Intermediate Test:This version allows 4 minutes per section, making it the more straightforward option. It consists of 50 questions to be finished within a 12-minute timeframe.
  • Cubiks Advanced Test:This edition provides a 20-minute time limit for tackling 30 challenging questions in both the numerical and verbal sections, with each section requiring 8 minutes of your attention.

Certain companies opt for the singular approach, assessing candidates by utilizing just one of the three sub-sections: Numerical, Verbal, or Abstract.

The Cubiks Test also includes the PAPI Personality Testwhich includes PAPI N and PAPI I. Continue reading for more information on these tests.

Next section we'll answer what distinguishes Logiks Intermediate from Logiks Advanced.

Cubiks Logiks Intermediate Sample Questions

Let's start with a sample question from our Cubiks preparation pack designed to simulate the Numerical section.

Attempt to solve this question within 15 seconds, as that's the time limit you'll have during the actual test.

Cubiks Tests Sample Question #1

The owner's age is three times that of the dog, and together, their ages sum up to 96 years. How old is the owner?

A. 24
B. 34
C. 58
D. 72
E. 81
F. None of the above
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is (D) - 72.

To solve this problem, we can set up an equation based on the relationship between the owner's age (3 times the dog's age) and their combined age (96):

Let X represent the dog's age, and 3X represent the owner's age. So, we have:

X + 3X = 96

Now, combine like terms:

4X = 96

Divide both sides by 4 to find X (the dog's age):

X = 96 / 4 = 24

So, the dog is 24 years old, and the owner is 3 times that, which is 3 * 24 = 72 years old.

Alternatively, you can use a shortcut method to check the answer choices:

If we consider answer A, where the owner is 24 years old, the dog would be 24 / 3 = 8 years old. Together, their ages would be 24 + 8 = 32, which is too small compared to the given sum of 96. So, we can eliminate answer A.

Now, let's check answer D, where the owner is 72 years old. In this case, the dog would be 72 / 3 = 24 years old. Together, their ages would be 72 + 24 = 96, which matches the given sum. Therefore, answer D is correct.

It's worth noting that since the owner's age must be divisible by 3 without a remainder due to the 3 times older relationship, you can quickly eliminate answers B and C (34 and 58) without further calculations.

As a solving tip, for time-saving purposes, it's often efficient to use approximation methods for these types of questions rather than aiming for an exact solution.

The Numerical section isn't solely reliant on pure mathematics; it also heavily emphasizes logical reasoning. As its name implies, this test primarily evaluates your logical thinking skills. By utilizing precise Cubiks practice tests, you can enhance your capacity to identify patterns within these questions, eliminating the need for extensive calculations and formula writing. This, in turn, will accelerate your decision-making process.

This approach is the most effective means to reduce the time required to address each question, excel in this section, and achieve a high score on the test.

Cubiks Logiks Advanced Sample Questions

Logiks Advanced may come in two versions:

Logiks General Advanced

The General Advanced form also comprises three sections, yet a significant distinction exists: you will be allotted additional time for responses, and there will be fewer questions.

Now, let's examine an example of an Advanced Numerical question from our preparation pack (please have a calculator ready for this one):

Cubiks Tests Sample Question #2

logiks num1

4. Which sector had the lowest unemployment in absolute values in 2006 in the UK and Australia combined?

Tourism & Hospitality
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

To determine the sector with the lowest unemployment, we should sum the unemployment numbers for each sector in both the UK and Australia. The sector with the smallest total will have the lowest unemployment. Additionally, examining the actual unemployment rate percentages can provide further insights. Here's the calculation:

• Healthcare = 122000 + 54000 = 176000 
• Tourism & Hospitality = 168000 + 65000 = 233000 
• IT = 82000 + 119000 = 201000 
• Education = 54000 + 87000 = 141000 
• Construction = 79000 + 26000 = 105000 

The answer is Construction.

5. Which sector had the greatest ratio of Australian to UK unemployed in 2006?

Tourism & Hospitality
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

To swiftly tackle this problem, it's best to analyze the data before diving into any calculations. The question revolves around the Australian to UK unemployed ratio, where a higher number in Australia and a lower number in the UK will yield a larger ratio.

We can promptly rule out the Healthcare, Tourism & Hospitality, and Construction sectors since the UK's unemployed count surpasses Australia's in those areas.

Between the IT and Education sectors, where Australia has a higher number of unemployed individuals, we can conduct a direct calculation to determine which sector yields the greater requested ratio.

The IT sector's ratio is 119000: 82000 = 1.45
The Education sector's ratio is 87000:54000 = 1.61.

The education sector has a higher ratio, making it the correct answer.

6. Which sector had a ratio of the number of UK to Australian unemployed of approximately 3:1?

Tourism & Hospitality
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

With a quick glance, it becomes evident that only the Construction and Other sectors exhibit a UK to Australian ratio of approximately 3:1. A more thorough calculation reveals the following:

Construction UK : Construction Australia = 79000 : 26000 = 3.03 : 1
Other UK : Other Australia = 3605000 : 1009000 = 3.57
The Construction sector has an approximate UK to Australian ratio of 3:1.
The answer is Construction

As evident, this task demands a meticulous examination of the chart and relies less on intuitive reasoning (keep in mind that you'll have a one-minute time limit to respond to these queries). Achieving precise and swift answers to such questions may initially take some time, but it becomes more manageable with practice.

Logiks Advanced Single Sections (Verbal/Numerical/Abstract)

The alternative version of Cubiks Advanced is designed to address individual test sections. You'll have a 25-minute time frame to respond to a range of 20 to 36 questions, depending on the specific subject (Numerical, Verbal, or Abstract reasoning).

This format is utilized by organizations seeking to evaluate a specific facet of your cognitive skills.

Now, here's a glimpse of another Verbal question from our Cubiks PrepPack™:

Cubiks Tests Verbal Sample Question #3

Dada was an artistic and literary movement that originated in neutral Zurich, Switzerland in 1916 as a reaction to World War I and the ubiquitous nationalism that accompanied it, consisting of artists who rejected the logic, reason and aestheticism of modern Western society and traditional art by expressing nonsense, irrationality and anti-bourgeois protest in their work. The movement organized public gatherings and demonstrations and published art and literary journals to spread their anti-war, anti-art message. Dada was practised as the antithesis to traditional art—the focus on meticulously planned works of art shifted into incorporating chance into them, challenging artistic norms and questioning the role of the artist. The art techniques the movement used include collages, photomontages and cut-up techniques. Dada artists utilized readymade objects in their work, buying and presenting everyday items as art with only little manipulation. Using prefabricated objects encouraged the discourse of artistic creativity and the purpose of art in society. The Dada movement dissipated with the establishment of Surrealism, a movement that aspired to liberate thought, language, as well as human experience from the oppressive boundaries of rationalism and was influenced by the Freudian theories of the subconscious.


Which one of the following assumptions is definitely made in the passage?

A. Dada is renowned for its deliberate art creations.B. Collages are regarded as a conventional artistic technique.C. Surrealism holds a higher prominence when compared to Dada.D. Not every European country took part in World War I.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is D.


Option (D) is the correct answer because it is stated in the passage that Dada originated in 'neutral Zurich, Switzerland', which means Switzerland did not take part in World War I.

Therefore, it can be inferred that not all countries in Europe participated in World War I.

Option (A) is incorrect because the passage states Dada was practiced as the antithesis to traditional art- it was based on chance, rather than meticulous planning.

Option (B) is incorrect because it cannot be assumed that collages are considered a traditional method of art.

Dada is stated in the passage as the antithesis to traditional art and as a movement that used collages as art techniques. Therefore, it is more likely to assume collages are not considered traditional methods of art.

Nevertheless, a definite assumption regarding the relationship between collages and traditional art cannot be made based on the passage.

Option (C) is incorrect because, even though it is mentioned in the passage that the Dada movement dissipated with the establishment of Surrealism.

It cannot be assumed it resulted from the prominence of Surrealism over the Dada movement.
