# Thread: Raven's matrices (IQ tests)

1. I'm so glad I came across this thread now, rather than before Red Herring found the mistake. Hours of wasted time averted...

2. rofl, yeah, i wasted at least 45 minutes on incorrect one

3. nice sleuthing, RH.

completely useless, but
blocked the incorrect one out patternwise

it works if you use cross-patterns, but it's not very logical. it was like playing bingo backwards...

4. these are kinda fun

this answer is not even offered in a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h answers, there is no pattern in it at all!

this is only valid pattern.

in all cases: clubs to hearts, diamond to clubs and hearts to diamond

6. I got some problems but they are too difficult for me.
Please tell me how to solve them.

so the one with 5 sides (pentagon ? ) has 5 diagonals
the one with 6 has 9 (6+3 : so triangle)
and the one with 7 has 14 diagonals

you can see from picture that (n-3)n/2 <- number of diagonals of n-sided polygon ... ex. n=3 for triangle

where did you get those questions ? they are crazy hard, at least on first look haha....

i will jump now on trying other 2... no high hopes though

this one is 1), because the ball forms "star" sign from square to square...

9. Wow! You're so clever!! Thank you so much. Well... I got these problems from my friend.
In fact, these are not all. There are some additional problems (Unfortunately, my friend also does not know these answers...).
If you have some enough time and enjoy solving problems such as these, I'll introduce more problems.
Let's think together.

10. sure. give em. they are fun (but the last one is KILLING me )
