### Cognitive abilities

• Discovering the correct zone is an essential element of the four-step method.
• By far, the most common zone to check for relationships between items is row by row; related items will typically feature in groups of three.
• Discovering the correct zone leads to faster solutions and dissolves some of the complexity of more difficult questions.

### Culture-fair matrices: Zones

List of zones:

• Rows - A horizontal relationship between groups of three cells.
• Irregular cells - Cells are located anywhere in the matrix, in groups of three, and usually one cell per row.
• Whole matrix - All cells yield the same information and are equally comparable to each other.
• Columns - Rows are the norm, though it is still possible to find column-defined zones.

### Example:

Fig 1. Rows

For every row, the cell on the right contains common elements from the other cells.

Fig 2. Irregular cells

There are three of each shape, circle/triangle/rectangle, in no particular order. The answer is a triangle, divided by a jagged line.

Fig 3. Whole matrix

All grids contain six diagonal lines.
