it is quite challenging and no guidelines. but overall it is worth exercising to shape your analytical thinking and give you a sense of judgement
Analytical Reasoning Tests
Analytical reasoning tests examine an individual’s ability to apply logic to solve problems. The questions vary depending on the type of analytical reasoning test you’re taking: from extracting key information from complex passages of text (verbal reasoning), to looking for patterns in a series of images (non-verbal reasoning), or using given information to draw conclusions or make predictions (inductive and deductive reasoning).

So the correct answer is F.
Numerical Question 1: Step 1. Extract the relevant figures from the graph Cost of per click in April. Google 18 cents : Facebook + Yahoo (14 + 6 = 20 cents). Step 2. Divide 20 by 18 to calculate the ratio. 20 ÷18 = 1.11 Step 3. Present as a ratio 1 : 1.11
Abstract Question 1: Arrow changes direction from pointing up, to pointing down, with each turn. 2. Triangle moves from top left corner in an anti-clockwise direction around the frame with each turn. So the answer is B.

Analytical Reasoning Tests Tips
Get as much background information as possible on the test you’ll be taking from the employer or recruiter, so you know which areas to focus on.
2Prepare with mock tests
Preparation is key – take mock tests in a quiet, distraction-free area and always make sure you go back through your answers at the end to identify any areas you need to work harder at.
3Tips for test day
On the test day itself, make sure you have everything you need to complete the test. When you start, ensure you know roughly how long you’ve got to answer each question, as although you’ll always need to work quickly, it’s important to read the question thoroughly and ensure you’ve understood it before getting started.
Try and remain positive. The tests are designed to be challenging, since employers want to push you. If you’ve put the time and effort into practising aptitude tests, you should feel confident you’ve given yourself the best chance possible to succeed.

Figure out the pattern
The test required a lot of focusing, in order to figure out the pattern which will help you get to the next sequence. It requires you to pay attention to detail, and be attentive.
