Let's start with the aptitude section.

Scales numerical Sample Questions

The Scales Numerical test uses the **six tabs** structure. In order to answer each question, you need to find which tab is relevant to what is being asked, and then locate the answer. For example, if the statement is about expenses, the correct tab would be "Operating Expenses".

Let's go over how to solve a scales Numerical question:

Sales

Human Resouces

Stores

Shares

Departments

Item Sales

**#1 - While 11% of Flying Colours stores are located in France, just 9% of the stores are located in the United States.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The word '**stores**' implies that the answer to the question is in the 'Stores' tab. The pie chart presents the distribution of store locations across different countries.

We can see that 11% of the stores are, indeed, in France (the purple segment). **However, 13% of stores are in the US** (the green segment), not 9%.

The statement is therefore **FALSE**.

**#2 - Flying Colours operates a total of 402 stores in Germany.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The word '**stores**' implies that the answer to the question is under the 'Stores' tab. the pie chart presents the distribution of store locations across different countries.

We need to find the number of stores the company operates in Germany. **We learn from the graph that the total number of stores is 2680 and that 15% of them are in Germany**. to find 15% of 2680:

**0.15 * 2680 = 402**

Therefore, the above statement is **TRUE.**

**#3 - In FY 7, Flying Colours profited about 26,000 Euros from its women's department alone.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The word '**department**' implies that the answer to this question is under the 'Departments' tab. the graph presents the varying share in profit for each of the different departments across a three-year period.

Look at the graph. in FY 7 the women's department was responsible for 26% of the company's total profit. **However, without the actual, absolute profit the company made that year, we cannot determine how much these 26% really are.**

Since this crucial piece of information is missing, we **cannot say** whether this statement is true or false.

**#4 - While Flying Colours' sales increased during the second quarter of financial year 1, they decreased during the fourth quarter of that financial year.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The word '**sales**' implies that the answer to this question is under the 'Sales' tab. The graph presents the sales volume per quarter across a three-year period.

The graph for FY 1 is coloured in blue. We can see that the graph increases towards the second quarter (from 3.15 to 3.53), so the first part of the statement is true. However, **the blue line increases towards the fourth quarter as well** (from 3.14 to 3.55). This is the exact opposite of the trend suggested in the second half of the statement.

We can therefore conclude the statement is **FALSE**.

**#5 - Earnings per share in the second quarter of the last financial year were about twice as high as the earnings per share in the first quarter of that year.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The term '**earnings per share**' implies that the answer to this question is under the 'Shares' tab. The table presents various financial details for the first three quarters of the recent financial year (always pay attention to the asterisks).

We need to find the earnings per share in Q1 and Q2.

**Q1 = 0.16**

**Q2 = 0.30**

0.30 / 2 = 0.15, which is indeed very close to 0.16. The above statement is therefore **TRUE**.

Note: Always pay attention to the phrasing of the statement. There are two 'Earnings per Share' rows in the table; how do we decide which one is relevant to this question?

'Rolling 12 months' refers to a 12-month period that may start at any time, and then run for 12 months. **Since the question is about the earnings in each quarter, not rolling 12 months, we need to look at the first 'Earnings per Share' row**.

Scales eql Sample Question

The format of the questions featured on this test is simple: An equation where the result and operators have been determined, but the other terms are left blank. Your task is to fill in the blanks using digits from 1 through 9, with each digit being used no more than once, in order to turn the equation into a true statement.

Let's review an example:

Show Solution

Applying BODMAS rules, **we should start with multiplication**. The quotient of the first two digits has to be lower than 14, as we will need to add more digits later.

In determining the most prudent digits to use for these positions, **we can take advantage of the unique properties of the number 1**, enabling us to twin it with a high number. For example, we can choose 9, and divide it by 1 to arrive at 9 - a number close enough to our predefined result that simple addition can get us to it.

**9 + x + y = 14**

Next, we will use **inverse operations** on both sides of the equation to simplify it:

**x + y = 5.**

All that remains is to find an appropriate combination for X and Y. One possible combination is: (3, 2).

Therefore, a possible solution is:** (9, 1, 3, 2)**

Other possible solutions: **(8, 4, 9, 3), (5, 1, 6, 3)**.

Scales Verbal Sample Questions

**The following six passages are to be used in answering the five questions that appear beneath them**. The challenge, therefore, is twofold: for each question, you must first intuit the passage most likely to hold the solution, **and then** use it to answer the question. The key to succeeding is to "lock down" the correct passage in as little time as possible, giving you ample time to find the information you need.

Products & Services

Corporate Scheme

Business Plan

Geographic Positioning

Corporate Values

Board Of Directors

**#1 - Flying Colours tries to maintain uniform campaigns and undeviating collections across its locations.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

Although none of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, by reading the statement as a whole** we can gather that it relates to business strategy**, and the most relevant tab would be 'Business Plan'.

The most relevant section of the tab seems to be 'International Expansion', as it relates to the company's "different locations", mentioned in the statement.

According to the text, "**Flying Colours offers several specific collections tailored for every country, as well as country-specific marketing campaigns**". This contradicts the statement, which means that it is **FALSE**.

Note that the use of the phrase "across its locations" could throw us off and lead us to the 'geographic positioning tab first. **This should not be too time-consuming**, as we would quickly see that this tab does not contain information regarding the company's collections, and a search for further information in the other tabs would bring us to the same conclusion.

**#2 - All customer inquiries regarding Flying Colours products are handled either by email or via a hotline.**

True

False

Canont Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

Since none of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, we should scan the tab section titles in order to find which one addresses the issue of customer inquiries**. The only tab that addresses this issue is the 'products and services tab**, where we should review the 'customer inquiries' section.

According to the text, the two methods of dealing with customer inquiries are 'email" and "hotline". Therefore, the statement is** TRUE**.

**#3 - John Summers got his doctorate in design from the University of Manchester.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The mention of a person's name should automatically direct us to the 'Board of Directors' tab, as **this is the only tab that offers information regarding personal history and qualifications**.

The relevant section can only be 'Dr. John Summers', as he is the only one mentioned in the statement. According to the text, Dr. Summers is a certified designer and received a Ph.D. from the University of Manchester. However, **we must avoid automatically linking the two**, as the text makes no such connection. We have no way of ascertaining whether Dr. Summers' Ph.D. from the University of Manchester is indeed in design.

Therefore, the answer is **CANNOT SAY**.

**#4 - Flying Colours’ Women’s Wear and Menswear product divisions focus solely on clothing for adults.**

True

False

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

Although none of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, by reviewing the statement as a whole we can gather that it addresses products offered within a division. Therefore, **the most relevant tab would be 'Products and Services'.**

Since the statement discusses menswear and womenswear, we should review the 'Women's and Menswear' section of the tab. According to this section, "**the Menswear and Womenswear Division's primary focus is adults, but increasingly, also teens**".

Therefore, the statement is **FASLE**.

**#5 - Flying Colours has only one marketing department.**

True

Fales

Cannot Say

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

None of the words or phrases in the statement seem to suggest a specific tab, but by reading the statement as a whole we can gather that it addresses the company's structure, **which is detailed in the 'Corporate Scheme' tab**.

The only section of the tab mentioning the company's marketing department is** the opening sentence**, which states: "The four of them (product divisions) operate with a unified marketing department".

Given that the company consists only of these four divisions, the statement is **TRUE**.

Scales tmt Sample Questions (calculating capacity)

This is an **applied numeracy test** that assesses your skills in percentages calculations translation, translation of units, and calculation of areas and spaces.

Try to solve the following:

**#1 - A train travels 90 miles in 15 minutes, how many miles does it travel in 2 hours?**

542

720

789

800

942

None of These

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

15 minutes are a 1/4 of an hour. To reach 2 hours from a 1/4 of an hour we need to multiply by 8. Since the time is multiplied by 8 we also multiply the distance traveled by 8:

**90*8 = 720 miles**

**#2 - 3 packs of chocolate cost $0.90, how much will 9 packs cost?**

$0.10

$0.30

$1.50

$2.20

2.70

None of These

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

This question is solved using the mathematical '**Rule of Three**', which is used in solving proportion problems.

According to this rule, you have three known values (e.g. 'a', 'b', and 'c'): two that are proportional to one another ('a' and 'b') and a third value ('c') which maintains the same proportion with a fourth, unknown value ('x'). Knowing that 'a' relates to 'b' as 'c' relates to 'x', apply the following formula:

Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/Picture.cshtml)According to the question, 3 packs of chocolate cost $0.90. Therefore, the two values of a known proportion are 3 and 0.90. You are asked about the cost of 9 packs. Therefore, the third known value is 9 and the unknown value will be x. If 3 boxes cost $0.90, then 9 packs cost x. Using the "Rule of three" formula:

Scales lst Sample Questions

In these questions, you will be presented with a 4x4 grid. Your task is to correctly identify which shape, out of four options, can replace the question mark such that the following rules are kept:

- Each shape can only appear once in a given column.
- Each shape can only appear once in a given row.

**There is only one correct answer per question.**

**Question #1**

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The shape missing from the third row is the X.

**Therefore, the correct answer is** :

**Question #2**

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

The shape missing from the fourth column is the X.

Having added the X to the bottom row, the shape missing from the bottom row is a circle.

**Therefore, the correct answer is** :

**Question #3**

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

Because there is already a triangle in the third row of the first column, the triangle in the second row must be in the last column.

Because there is already a circle in the third column of the top row, the circle in the last column must be in the third row.

Having added these shapes, the shape missing from the last column is the X.

**Therefore, the correct answer is** :

AON/cut-e scales sx (swithchChallenge) Sample Questions

The general idea of this kind of questions is converting the input shape sequence, numbered from left to right, into the output shape sequence using an operator. Each operator consists of four digits. Each digit represents the previous position of each shape before it was changed by the operator. The new order of the shapes’ positions matches the positions of the digits.

Try this example on for size:

Show Solution

First, take note of the position of each of the input shapes; they are numbered from left to right (1-4).

**1 - Diamond 2 - Hexagon 3 - Triangle 4 - Star**

Look at the answers (the operators): Starting with the left one, let's look at the first digit.

Figure out whether the shape in the first position of the output sequence is in the position indicated by this digit in the input sequence.

If it is not, eliminate that answer.

**In this example, the first operator begins with the digit 4, which would make the output figure in the leftmost position a star. Since that is not the case, this cannot be the answer.**

Go through the first digits of the rest of the answers and eliminate or keep them as you go.

If you are left with more than one possible answer, keep using this method with the rest of the digits in each answer.

Eliminate answers as you go according to the information you gathered.

**In this example, we are left with our answer after two rounds of elimination: (1, 3, 2, 4).**

scales ix Sample Questions

** **

Each scales ix question consists of nine similar images. **All but one follow a pattern or a rule**, and your task is to deduce that rule and select the one image that does not comply with it.

**#1 - Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule.**

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

**The correct answer is object #5.**

All objects conform to the following rule (regardless of their order): **Each object contains a 4-sided polygon**.

The only object that does not fit this rule is object #5, which contains a 5-sided polygon.

Note: The alternations in the polygons’ colour (black, grey, white, grey, black…) are kept throughout the entire series, and thus cannot be the key to solving the question; they only serve as a distraction.

**#2 - Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule.**

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

**The correct answer is object #3.**

All objects conform to the following rule (regardless of their order): **Each object contains at least one horizontal rectangle.**

The only object that does not fit this rule is object #3, which only contains vertical rectangles.

Note: The variations in the rectangles’ colour and location serve as a distraction; the only thing that matters is whether or not there is a horizontal rectangle.

**#3 - Please mark the object that doesn't fit the rule.**

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

**The correct answer is object #5**.

The objects form a formal series. All objects contain a square divided into 3 distinct parts, each having a different fill. When moving from one object to the next one in the series, the fill of each part alternates between black, grey and striped (please note that the square rotates as a whole, keeping the relative position of its parts constant).

For instance, if we focus on the right trapezoid-shaped part in the 1st object, we can see that in this object it has a grey fill, in the 2nd object (where it is located at the bottom of the square) it has a striped fill, in the 3rd object (where it is located at the left side of the square) it has a black fill, and so forth.

**The only object that does not fit this rule is object #5, in which the fill of the two trapezoids is switched (the upper trapezoid should have had a striped fill and the lower trapezoid - a black fill).**

Note: The rotations of the square serve as a distraction; the only thing that matters is the fill of each of its parts.

Aon/cut-e scales clx Sample Question

Scales clx questions require you to examine a pair of shape grids, figuring out what rule or pattern characterizes both of them. Then, using this discovery, you must select the two shape grids out of the answers panel that follows the same rule.

**There are two correct answers per question.**

**Which two of these grids follow the same rule?**

Show Solution

The rules are as follows:

- The upper row and the lower row contain the same kind of shapes.
- In the middle row, each slot contains a different kind of shape. Their order is irrelevant.

Therefore, grids 1 and 4 are the only grids that follow the rules.

Aon/cut-e scales cls Sample Question

Each task presents six tables containing numbers and letters. The tables are divided into two groups, so the numbers and letters in each group follow a certain rule or set of rules. Each table is marked by a colour according to the group it belongs to: orange (above the table) or violet (below the table).

At the bottom of the test screen, there are four additional tables with numbers and letters. Your task is to decide which group each of these tables belongs to. You then need to assign each table to its group by clicking on the appropriate circle (either above or below the table).

Do you think you're up for the challenge? Here's a sample question to find out:

**Assign the correct market (orange or violet) to each of the bottom four tables**

Show Solution

Pattern: All tables with marking below (violet) have N's in the 5 places that are not the 4 corners. The tables with the marking above (orange) do not.

The correct markings, from left to right, are therefore: **Orange, violet, orange, violet.**

Aon chatAssess

Each question is comprised of:

**A scenario**: A description of a work-related situation.**Instructions**: For each item, you will need to choose one answer choice that includes the best/worst/first response to the situation.

Try evaluating your intuition with the following example:

**There are new policies regarding safety in the office. All personnel must take an online course on the company website, and then take a safety regulations test at a designated time and place. You are responsible for administering and collecting the exams in your office.****What would you do first?**

Read the instructions and regulations regarding the test administration.

Circulate an email with the instructions for the test so that your office can start preparing.

Talk to IT about potential network problems that could occur during the test.

Schedule the room in which the test should be administered.

Correct Answer

Incorrect Answer

**Best response: A**

In general, it is good practice to understand the goals and principles guiding a task before trying to accomplish it. This is a common theme in SJT questions, and you should always ask yourself if you fully understand a task before trying to accomplish it.

By reading the instructions and regulations first, you can fully understand how to administer the exam. Choosing this response demonstrates your ability to prioritise tasks and define action plans— this being a good indication of your decision-making and organizational skills.

**Additional Responses:**

B. This could be a good thing to do, as it enables the staff to familiarise themselves with the test instructions and gives them plenty of time to prepare for the test. However, you need to choose the best first response. Sending the instructions before reading them yourself is definitely not the first task to take. As the administrator of the test, you are required to know more about the test than anyone else. You, therefore, need to familiarise yourself with the instructions and make sure they are clear to you prior to distributing them to the staff.

C. Talking to IT seems like a responsible thing to do, but it is hardly the first response you should take. You should first read the test instructions to see what the test entails, and only then raise any potential problems with the IT department.

D. It is obvious that you will eventually need to schedule a room to administer the test. However, you first need to know if there are special instructions and regulations for this action. Only by reading the instructions first can you determine where and how to administer the exam.

Aon squares Integrity Test

Every question on this page thus far has required you to identify a correct answer out of a set of distractors. The squares integrity test is a change of pace, as none of the answers are right or wrong. The test works best when answered honestly.

You will be presented with a statement and asked to rate the degree to which you feel it describes you accurately. Because the test is timed, it is advisable not to think too long about any particular answer but rather to select the choice you instinctively feel is best. Don't try to answer as you believe your potential employer would like you to, as the test can detect falseness.

Here is an example of what you may see on the squares test:
