Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

This is a practice 11+ Numerical and Non-Verbal Reasoning paper in the style of a CEM assessment.

 

This is a multiple-choice assessment. 

In the 11+, you may complete your answers on a separate piece of paper or on a computer. 

At EdPlace, you will select the correct answer from five options on the computer (a,b,c,d,e).

 

This paper includes a variety of types of non-verbal questions. 

At the start of each question, there will be a set of instructions which you will need to apply until further instruction.

 

You should work as quickly as possible through the questions. 

The timer is set for 45 minutes for this practice paper, although you can keep working after the timer has run out. 

This means that you should aim for no more than 45 seconds per question and hopefully, as you become more confident, less than 45 seconds. 

You may find some of the questions difficult. 

If you are struggling to answer a question do not waste time on it, but move onto the next question.

Oranges weigh 110 grams. 

 

If Sarah fills her 1.6 kg shopping bag with 9 apples and 12 oranges, how much in kilograms does it weigh?

CORRECT ANSWER
3.55 kg
EDDIE SAYS
9 apples weigh 630 grams. 9 x 70 = 630 12 oranges weigh 1320 grams. 12 x 110 = 1320 The bag weighs 1600 grams. 1.6 x 1000 = 1600 Altogether the bag and the fruit weigh 3550 grams. 630 + 1320 + 1600 = 3550 Convert the grams to kilograms: 3550 ÷ 1000 = 3.55 kg

Simon buys 10 cans of dog food, which each contain 500 grams. 

He feeds his dog 300 g of food per meal.

His dog eats twice a day.

 

How many days will the cans last?

CORRECT ANSWER
8
EDDIE SAYS
10 cans of dog food contain 5000 grams. The dog eats 600 g a day and in 8 days would eat 4800 g. 8 x 600 = 4800 There would be 200 g left, so not enough for another day's food. So the cans would last 8 whole days.
  • Question 7

Sarah and Ben earn £45 from washing cars.

 

Sarah spends ⅓ of the money on new car shampoo.

 

Ben spends 30% of the money on new sponges and buckets.

 

How much profit do they have after buying new supplies?

CORRECT ANSWER
£16.50
EDDIE SAYS
⅓ of £45 is £15 45 ÷ 3 = 15 30 of £45 is £13.50 10% = £4.50 4.5 x 3 = 13.5 They spend £28.50 on new supplies. 15 + 13.5 = 28.5 They have £16.50 left, which is profit. 45 - 28.5 = 16.5

The rest are stored to be sold later.

 

How many apples are put into storage?

CORRECT ANSWER
335
EDDIE SAYS
50% of the apples are sent to market or made into juice. 33 + 17 = 50 Therefore, 50% of the apples are stored to be sold later. 50% of 670 is 335.
  • Question 10

 

What is the total area of 3 parallelograms like the one above in metres squared?

CORRECT ANSWER
1.8 m ²
EDDIE SAYS
To find the area of a parallelogram, use the equation base x height. 10 x 6 = 60 The parallelogram shown has an area of 60 cm ³ . So, the area of 3 of these parallelograms would be 180 cm ³, which converts to 1.8 m ³ .
  • Question 11

  • Question 12

 

In a maths test where the maximum possible score is 60, James scored 39.

 

How many students definitely scored less than James?

CORRECT ANSWER
18
EDDIE SAYS
James scored 39 out of 60. So, his mark is included in the 31-40 bar. Add up the bars containing lower scores to find out how many students definitely scored less than James. 12 + 4 + 2 = 18. 4 students scored 31-40. Some of these may have scored lower than James, but we cannot know for certain.
  • Question 13

3S - 35
EDDIE SAYS
There are 3 jars of sweets. This is shown using the expression: 3S. Mr Weddell gives away 35 sweets in total. So 3S - 35 is the correct expression.
  • Question 16

Tom is weighing fruit. 

 

3 apples and 4 pears weigh 1.8 kg.

 

2 apples and 4 pears weigh 1600 g.

 

How much would 4 apples and 5 pears weigh, in kg?

CORRECT ANSWER
2.3 kg
EDDIE SAYS
The difference between the two descriptions given is 200 g and 1 apple. So, 1 apple weighs 200 g and 1 pear weighs 300 g. (2 x 200) + (4 x 300) = 1600 So, 4 apples and 5 pears would weigh 2300 g, or 2.3 kg. (4 x 200) + (5 x 300) = 2300
  • Question 17

She plans to buy a new pair of shoes which will cost £68.

 

She has already saved £12.

 

How many weeks will it take before Sue has enough money to buy the new shoes?

CORRECT ANSWER
14 weeks
EDDIE SAYS
Sue needs to save another £56. 68 - 12 = 56 She needs to save another 7 lots of £8. This will take 14 weeks, as she gets given pocket money every 2 weeks. So, Sue will have to save for 10 more weeks.
  • Question 21

The total area of her pattern is 900 cm ² .

 

How many triangles are in Beth's pattern?

CORRECT ANSWER
15

Apply this relationship to the shape on the bottom and then identify from the options below, which shape would be the best match.

 

 

 

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
Option c is the correct answer here. The heart will rotate 180 degrees, so that it appears upside down. The lines in the question image run from top right to bottom left so, if this shape is rotated 180 degrees, this will still be true.
  • Question 28

For questions 27-31, identify the relationship between shapes at the top.   

 

Apply this relationship to the shape on the bottom and then identify from the options below, which shape would be the best match.

 

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
Option a is the correct answer here. The inner and outer shapes swap places, plus the outside markings move. The curved marking moves to the opposite end of the shape, or rotates 180 degrees. The line moves a much smaller distance, 45 degrees in a clockwise direction. The line is represented differently based on the shape it accompanies, but it stays the same between the pair of images.
