Different type of challenge

Post by AlanW »

Found a copy of a Mental Alertness Test used for Aircrew in training, and thought it might be a challenge here. Have rubbed out the answers given by this applicant, and as you will see, he got some wrong. Those that are right, i have noted down. Four pages, of 60 questions. Who is up for it.... ;)
There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.

Thanks Alan ............... without looking at any other answer, here is my first an only attempt.
I've tried to do the test reasonably quickly, as in just like sitting a test.

I agree with all of the answers except Q4. I haven't a clue what they are asking in that question.

Gents, to me ......... question 4 is easy unless I'm reading it wrong.

As it says, 4 + 5 = 9, so write 9. We all know 4 + 4 does not equal 7 ............. so 9 it is.

Cue Alan to confirm :)
