They are not all the same. I couldn't solve some. The first is the easiest - just combining an arithmetic sequence and a geometric sequence. Problem 6 also uses a geometric sequence, but slightly less obviously. Problem 3 seems to have some pattern to it and you may at first see only part of the solution, but when you do find the rest you will see that it's really easy if read the right way. Problem 5 is very easy (just say the numbers to get the main idea). Problem 9 should be reasonably easy once you've read these comments. For problem 15, first spot a sequence, then carefully look at what doesn't belong to that sequence. Problem 16 is another problem where it's ludicrously easy once you realize how to read it, but looks a bit weird until you do. It's not really about fractions. Problem 18 looks a bit strange at first, but is easy. At least one of the problems is slightly easier if you are used to using English or have English as your main language.

Why are you so keen on being given answers? You will benefit far more by working out the problems for yourself.
Thanks from huy

You are being extremely rude. You keep saying "help me" but when skipjack did help you complained because he did not just give you the answers.

Intellectual dishonesty

The "questions" Huy posted constitute the full set of a common High-Range IQ test which is used to gate admissions into a number of High-IQ societies.

The fervor with which Huy continues to ask for answers suggests that Huy might be attempting to outsource his own IQ assessment.

High range IQ testing is difficult for several reasons, and one result of this difficulty is that humanity currently does not have many decent high-range tests available. This particular test IS quite decent (fairly accurate up to IQ 171).

I politely request that we cease posting answers to these questions immediately, and if possible, that we remove the answers which have already been posted.

As noted above, humanity doesn't have many high-range IQ tests available, and spoiling tests by posting answers online is tantamount to carelessly tossing into a fire the final copy of a priceless book.

Many many thanks!

As it's based entirely on numbers and number-based trickery, it's hardly a decent IQ test. The questions (but not their explanations) are available elsewhere on the internet, so anyone who can find them by using a search engine can then ponder them for as long as they like, and will presumably start to find solutions, especially if they discuss the questions with other people.

Doing that is no more of a problem than studying chess techniques before joining a chess club.

Why don't ya'll forget this thread:
Huy hasn't been back since Nov last year.

Perhaps he's now on the Mensa Board of Detractors...whoops, Directors

1) See above hints.

5) The next value is 34 (then the whole sequence repeats).

14) Possibly 611.
15) 1118256
16) 2217
18) 11
How did you arrive at 34 for #5?
