Number Analogies Questions are a part of the Cogat Test's Quantitative Battery.

In the Number Analogies Questions, students will be required to determine what numbers are missing from the number sets.

Student will see two pairs of numbers and then a number without its pair. The first two pairs of numbers are correlated in some way. Children have to find out the correlation between the numbers within each of the pairs, choosing an answer that gives the third pair of numbers, related to each other in the same way.

In the first two sets, you have 8 and 4; 6 and 3. Both numbers (8 and 6), are divided by 2 (8:2=4; 6:2=3).

Apply the same rule to the number 20.

20 : 2 = 10

The right answer is “C”.

Tips for Number Analogies

  • Step 1: acquire all the information from the two given pairs (relationships, sums, subtractions, etc.).

  • Step 2: apply the same rules, relations, formulas that you correctly identified in step 1.

  • Step 3: double-check that the rule has been properly applied.
