Against pop-ups, free and really convivial:
This is the definitive version of the 916 test. Old version
The 916 test, divided in three sub-tests, is a power-type IQ test intended to measure the logico-divergent thinking ability.
A non expected but pertinent answer will be taken into account in the raw score, and weighted according to its degree of quality.
There is no time limit; material help allowed: books, calculator, computer, internet…, corrections and additions are not accepted; no discussion with others, no help from anyone in any way.
Requisites : logic, imagination, shrewdness, minimal general knowledge, and a very good sense of observation. Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org

Please include your name, age, gender, e-mail address, and native language. If relevant, please list scores on previously-taken IQ tests, along with the names of the tests. It’s important to normalize the “916 test”. Thanks for your comprehension.

Read carefully the following warning !
You have to choose the most basic, the most general and the most precise solution. To avoid confusion, don’t “point out” the solution; write or draw it completely! If there is the most little part of subjectivity or interpretation in your answer, this is not the good answer!
A potentially infinite series is indicated by the dots; the hyphens indicate the number of elements (not asked) after the question mark; otherwise, there is logically nothing else possible after the last element
The numbering of the items doesn’t belong to the items!
The entire subtests A and B, and the most part of subtest C don’t require any knowledge; it means they are not culturally nor idiosyncratically biased; all the symbols are fluid.

How can you detect a time two times faster, i.e. if all entities in the universe, you included, moved and grew old suddenly two times faster, without any knowledge in science and without sophisticated measuring apparatus?
