Reasoning requires logical and intellectual skills as well as practice.

These worksheets define different types of relationships. Just some tips, ask the children to look at the first two pictures/figures and try to understand how they are similar or related to each other. In the same way, they need to find out which picture can appear in the fourth place so the relationship between the third and fourth figures is the same as between the first and second pictures.
