Key takeaway

Cappfinity's style of questions is quite unique compared with many other test publishers. Each of the 5 types you can expect to encounter whilst sitting their numerical and verbal reasoning assessments are analysed below:

  • Multiple Choice: Simple choice of picking ONE of multiple answers you are presented with.
  • Drop-down Multiple Choice: This follows exactly the same logic as a Multiple Choice question, except all of the options available will be revealed to you once you've clicked the drop-down box. This is used when you need to answer multiple questions which utilise the same numerical data or verbal information.
  • Rank: This is a format not seen often. Click and drag each of the answer options until you think you've correctly sorted the choices given to you according to the question.
  • Text Field: A blank text field is displayed to you and you must enter your answer here as alphanumerical characters. This drastically reduces the chances you have to guess the answer.
  • Drag-and-drop: Similar to rank, in that you will be required to sort your answers by clicking and dragging. However, you will not be required to sort via ascending/descending order, but whether each answer option belongs to a certain category or not.
