Abstract non-symbolic numerical representations are important in assessing IQ because they can provide the evolutionary and developmental foundation to mathematical thinking1.
Latin Squares follow two important rules:
1. Each column and row must contain one symbol of each kind.
2. Each column and row cannot contain repeated symbols.
For each question, you will be shown a 4 x 4 Latin Square, partially completed with symbols. One cell will have a question mark on it.
You must select the option with the symbol that should replace the question mark.
