# Is it vertical or horizontal from the 1st shape to the next shape in the following IQ quiz?

Asked by flo (10680) August 2nd, 2017

Edited:
It’s about the 1st question here:
https://www.test-iq.org/take-the-iq-test-now/
Which is the 2nd shape? Are we supposed to look at the shape to the right of the 1st shape or the one below it?

Thanks, so fast while I can edit it.

flo (10680)

F, obviously.
It works in any direction.

There is a commonality to all three in the top row.

There is a commonality to all three in the left column.

Commonality carries over to the middle row and the middle column.

“F” shows a commonality to both the column and the row it is in.

Like others said, it shouldn’t matter whether you scan the chart vertically or horizontally. You’ll arrive at the same answer either way: F.

Mariah (24964)

You should have said you have to pay to get results. That’s ten minutes of my life I’ll never get back. :-)

Could it be incidental that either way the answer is the same?

Did everybody other than @janbb pay to get the answer? And where are the answers?

@janbb I didn’t know you have to pay just like you didn’t know. There is no indication of it in the page or in the tab I hadn’t read the other tabs

flo (10680)

@flo I understand. Not you fault; it was just frustrating.

janbb (51923)

I still need to know did everyone else in this thread pay? And how much?

flo (10680)

And how do you know if it’s about each row as an item or each shape as an item?

flo (10680)

I really doubt anyone in the thread paid. I didn’t. F just seemed like the obvious answer.

Mariah (24964)

Flo I think you had to look at the whole pattern of each q to try to figure it out. They did get harder as you went through the test.

janbb (51923)

@flo There are patterns in how each cell relates to the other cells around it, whether left or right, above or below. The right answer for the ninth cell will maintain that relationship.

zenvelo (31468)

F

It doesn’t matter if you read it left to right across the rows, or top to bottom down the columns, either way the pattern is obvious.

I read it left to right initially.

@flo do you not see the pattern?

JLeslie (54627)

You have to pay to get the results, not pay to take the test. This is common with sites like this.

The answer must fit the pattern both horizontally and vertically. It doesn’t matter which way you start. The answer is the same either way. If in doubt, as a general rule, read from left to right rather than top to bottom since that is normal in Western writing systems (as opposed to Chinese writing, for example, which is top to bottom)

Fear not @flo, I have run your observations listed below through my patent pending IQ discombobulator. Your free trial of my IQ generating software is for 30 days after which you will be automatically billed the modest monthly stipend.

1. Which is the 2nd shape? Are we supposed to look at the shape to the right of the 1st shape or the one below it?

2. Could it be incidental that either way the answer is the same?

3. Did everybody other than @janbb pay to get the answer? And where are the answers?
@janbb I didn’t know you have to pay just like you didn’t know. There is no indication of it in the page or in the tab I hadn’t read the other tabs

4. I still need to know did everyone else in this thread pay? And how much?

5. And how do you know if it’s about each row as an item or each shape as an item?

The second third and fourth moments of your IQ probability generating function are within the bounds of reason and I plead the fifth. The variance isn’t at, I’d askew if the skew was whiff and the kurtosis (or weight in the tails) is most comely. The mean isn’t too.

^^I didn’t see any answers, I only did the first question though. The answer is obvious for that question, I don’t think anyone here feels like they need to confirm they are correct.

However, if @flo is having trouble seeing the pattern that’s not anything to be ashamed of. I once did a test like this with my husband and he saw some patterns I didn’t and vice verse, but if she is having trouble with number one, I think it is valuable information on how she puts information together. Same if you are having trouble with it also.

JLeslie (54627)

F is the obvious answer to me too.

@all,
The OP is not what is the answer to Q number one.

flo (10680)

@Stinley Thanks for pointing out that it’s the result the payment is for. I wasn’t thinking.

@all,
I just posted another OP
https://www.fluther.com/202676/is-the-pattern-the-same-vertically-and-horizontally-in-the-following/ It was question number 2 yesterday.

flo (10680)

It’s q #10 Don’t bother with the link. It keeps posting the 1st question page.
