Example police aptitude test questions

Here are some police entry test sample quesitons from the USA: Specifically, the math portion of the exam contains 20 questions, the reading comprehension section contains 25 questions, the language skills portion contains 20 questions, and the writing sample contains 10 questions. In order to score 75% on the entire exam, at least 57 questions must be answered correctly. Therefore, given the limited time in which to answer questions, examinees should focus their time and attention on the questions that they find easier. Spending too much time on one question can result in the examinee running out of time and not being able to answer other questions. Q1 – Bail for Mr. Anders was set at £250,000. To be released, he must pay 10% of this in cash. How much must Mr. Anders pay? £250 £2,500 £20,500 £25,000 Q2 – A car skidded 800cm before coming to a complete stop.
