This sample Wonderlic Test neither equates nor carries the questions which are offered in a real Wonderlic test. However, it contains problems which will help you to analyze the type of questions that you may face in a real-life candidate screening process.
You know the Wonderlic Personality test has been used for decades to judge the intelligence of the career seekers. The owner's company closely protect the questions. They are intellectual property. However, a sample Wonderlic test can be easily made based on leaked test questions. A sample Wonderlic test usually contains samples of the three main topics of the Wonderlic test, which includes: mathematics, reading comprehension, and spatial reasoning questions.
1.) Which number is larger: .8, 8, 90, 200?
2.) If a cup of pancake mix makes 2 pancakes, how many pancakes can be made with 3 cups of pancake mix?
3.) An airplane travels 100 miles per hour. How long will the airplane take to travel 300 miles?
4.) A gallon of gas costs $2.50. How many gallons of gas can be purchased with $5?
5.) A 10 year old Ford truck has 100,000 miles on the engine when the transmission fails on the truck. There are two replacements available- one transmission will last for 20 years, or 50,000 miles, and the other transmission will last for 8 years, or 75,000 miles. Given the current average yearly mileage on this truck, which transmission would last the longest?
6.) A rocket engine that takes off from earth burns 10,000 pounds of fuel in 15 minutes, and is able to lift 20,000 pounds total for that time period (including the rocket fuel itself). If a payload that weighs 20,000 pounds is needed to be transported for one hour, and unused rocket engines are dropped in stages after their fuel has been exhausted, how many rocket engines must be used to transport the payload for that time period?
1.) How many of the five pairs listed below are exact duplicates?
Bologna AND Balogna
Malicious AND Malicious
Firearm AND Fiream
Space Shuttle AND Space Huttle
Gray AND Green
2.) 7 months of the year have 31 days, and 4 have 30 days. What month has only 28 days?
3.) Do the words retire and inspire have opposite meanings, similar meanings, or no relation?
4.) Do the words hypothesis and theory have opposite meanings, similar meanings, or no relation?
1.) Assume the first two statements are true. 1.) A boy has a car.
2.) Car drivers have drivers licenses
3.) Drivers Licenses are blue.
Is the final statement true, false, or undeterminable?
2.) What number is the next number in the following pattern?
16,32, 64, 128, ___
3.) Which of the following shapes has the least drag, if thrown in the air:
Square, Rectangle, Circle, Polygon, Triangle
4.) If a gear on a motor turns clockwise, and is attached to another gear, which direction will the other gear turn?
5.) Assume the first two statements are false.
1.) Tom likes to eat Raspberries from the store.
2.) Raspberries in the store are poisoned.
3.) Tom has been poisoned.
Is the final statement true, false, or undetermined?
Normally, these questions would appear in order from the easiest questions, to the hardest questions. This is one of the main strengths of the Wonderlic test, and a sample Wonderlic test should include questions in the order from easiest to hardest. If you are taking a practice Wonderlic test that does not arrange the questions in any particular order from easiest to hardest, this is not an accurate practice of a Wonderlic test!
Of course, we can't let you go without telling you the answers to this test, so here are the answers to our example of a practice Wonderlic test, and explanations of the correct answers for some of the harder questions:
Mathematics Sample Wonderlic Test
2.) 6 pancakes
3.) 3 hours
4.) 2 gallons
5.) The 8 year lifespan transmission will last the longest, assuming that the mileage per year rate does not change.
6.) 30 rocket engines are required. The first stage consists of 16 rockets, the second stage is 8 rockets, the third stage is 4 rockets, and the final stage is 2 rockets.
Answers for Reading Comprehension Sample Wonderlic Test
1.) There is only one match- malicious.
3.) No relationship
4.) Similar meanings
Spatial Reasoning Sample Wonderlic Test
1.) Undeterminable given the first two statements.
2.) 256. Each number is doubled.
5.) Indeterminable, because Tom could still be poisoned from another source other than Raspberries.
Lastly, total up your score, and multiply that result times 3.33 to get your total approximate Wonderlic score from this sample Wonderlic test. If you scored 20 total, you are average. Anything below 10 is barely literate, and genius is any score over 40.
