Below there are NNAT Kindergarten sample questions followed by detailed explanations. Each question deals with a different subject that can be found on the actual test. Read the instructions for each question before you start solving them.
Pattern Completion
Answer & Explanation
Imagine continuing the two curves across the empty square. The right side of the outermost curve will be white. The right side of the next curve will be yellow and the left side of the curve will be blue. The only answer choice that conforms to these requirements is answer choice D.
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is B. Look at the design in the large rectangle while paying attention to the missing square. Which answer choice completes the design?
In this design there are alternating blue and white waves. First notice the general color layout of what the empty square should be. The top and the bottom will be white while the center will be blue. Therefore, we can eliminate answer choices C, D, and E.
Imagine extending the curves of top and bottom lines of the middle curve through the empty square. Notice that both of these curved lines face the top of the empty square, and therefore we can eliminate answer choice A. We are left with answer choice B, the correct answer.
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is C. Look at the design in the large rectangle while paying attention to the missing square. Which answer choice completes the pattern?
Imagine extending the curve of the circle across the empty square. The curve will extend across the top-right corner of the square. Answer choice C is the only answer choice which contains this property. We can eliminate answer choices A, B, D, and E because they contain lines which extend in different directions.
Answer choice C is the only remaining answer choice.

Reasoning by Analogy
1. In this kind of questions, there is a relation between the four boxes. The empty box must have the same relation as the others. You should examine across the rows or down the columns to figure out that relation. Do so in the direction in which the relation is clearer.
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is E. In the above analogy, look for a relationship between the figures across the rows and down the columns. The direction in which you examine the question should depend on where you can most easily visualize the analogous relationship.
Look at the top and middle rows. The figures on the right are mirror images of the figures on the left, flipped horizontally. Now look at the bottom row. The figures in the bottom row will follow the same rules. The figure on the left will be the mirror image of the figure on the right, flipped horizontally.
Take a look at the bottom row. Flip the image in the left frame horizontally to reach the answer choice. Since the left figure contains a yellow triangle at the top-left part of the figure, the right figure will contain a yellow triangle at the top-right part of the figure (answer choice E).
2. In this kind of questions, there is a relation between the four boxes. The empty box must have the same relation as the others. You should examine across the rows or down the columns to figure out that relation. Do so in the direction in which the relation is clearer.
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is E. In the above analogy, look for a relationship between the figures across the rows and down the columns. The direction in which you examine the question should depend on where you can most easily visualize the analogous relationship.
The figures across the rows and down the columns are identical to each other. For example, look at the top row. The yellow square on the left is identical to the yellow square on the right. The shapes in the bottom row will exhibit the same relationship. Since the shape on the left is a yellow square, the shape on the right will also be a yellow square (answer choice E).
he top of the empty square, and therefore we can eliminate answer choice A. We are left with answer choice B, the correct answer.
3. In this kind of questions, there is a relation between the four boxes. The empty box must have the same relation as the others. You should examine across the rows or down the columns to figure out that relation. Do so in the direction in which the relation is clearer.
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is B. In the above analogy, look for a relationship between the figures across the rows and down the columns. The direction in which you examine the question should depend on where you can most easily visualize the analogous relationship.
In this analogy, the shapes remain the same across the rows, as does the color scheme going down the columns. The top row contains triangles and the bottom row contains pentagons. Thus, we can eliminate answer choices A and C, as they contain triangles rather than pentagons.
We are left with answer choices B, D, and E. The figures in the left column are yellow on a blue background and the figure in the right column is blue on a yellow background. Since the empty frame is in the right column, the figure will be blue on a yellow background. We can eliminate answer choice E, as the figure is yellow on a blue background. Additionally, notice that the direction of the shapes does not change across the rows. Thus, we can eliminate answer choice D and are left with answer choice B, the correct answer.

Serial Reasoning
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is E. Identify the image which completes the pattern by examining how the series of shapes change across the rows and down the columns within the matrix. The direction in which you examine the question should depend on where you can most easily visualize the relationship.
Each frame contains an image composed of an inner square and an outer diamond. Each row and column contain one yellow, one blue, and one white inner square and outer diamond. The third row already contains one yellow and one blue inner square. Thus, the inner square of the answer choice must be white. We can eliminate answer choices A, B, and C. The third row contains one white and one blue outer diamonds. Thus, the outer square of the answer choice must be yellow. We are left with answer choice E.
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is A. Identify the image which completes the pattern by examining how the series of shapes change across the rows and down the columns within the matrix. Where you can most easily visualize the relationship will determine the direction in which you examine the question.
As you move across the rows and down the columns, the yellow star rotates counterclockwise one place within the grid. Take a look at the third row. Rotating the star in the top-left corner one place counterclockwise will result in a grid with a star in the top-left corner of the grid (answer choice A).
Answer & Explanation
The correct answer is D. Identify the image which completes the pattern by examining how the series of shapes change across the rows and down the columns within the matrix. Where you can most easily visualize the relationship will determine the direction in which you examine the question.
In the above matrix, the figures in the left column are a combination of the figures in the middle and right columns. The images in the first column are “cut” into two symmetrical parts. To create the third image in the first column, you need an image that completes the third image in the middle column. Using these guidelines you can see that the correct answer choice is D.
