# 3 IQ Test patterns - 3x3 grids of 3x3 grids with Xs, circles, squares, shading

1.

Row 2 Column 2: Rotate each grid by 90degrees clockwise vertically. The highlighted objects include one of each type and number 1,2,3 in every row and column.

2.

Row 2 Column 1: The circle doesn't move across a row. The middle column provides an axis to reflect the first column into the third column with, extending in one direction to an edge.

3.

Row 1 Column 2: There are three different grid patterns, arranged as:

 A B C

Each pattern has a different shape for 1, 2 and 3 objects in the grid.

• Just beat me to it well done Dec 6, 2018 at 20:00
• Of course! well done! Dec 6, 2018 at 21:46
• That first one was too easy, but well done for getting the others! $(+1)$ :P Dec 9, 2018 at 2:14
• I disagree with the explanation on 2. The idea is that a line originating from the circle, is rotating around it (either clockwise or counter-clockwise). Rotation is 45 degrees. Jun 10, 2021 at 7:23
