The Raven Riddle IQ Test

The Raven Riddle IQ Test The following 15 riddles were created by Thomas A. Smith Jr. The answers to the riddles all share a common thread: they contain the word "ever". The word may appear outright or may be scrambled. Nevertheless, it is there.

Unlike most of our tests, you are encouraged to use a dictionary in book form, especially a "good" dictionary such as Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Edition: http://www.puzz.com/merriam.html and you may use Dictionary.com. Please do not use any other books, web sites, software, or the help of anyone else in working these problems. You may use paper and pen or pencil.

Some of the problems are very difficult, and may contain words, names or terms that you are unfamiliar with. Be sure to answer every problem, even if this means guessing on some problems. There are no penalties for guessing.

Although there is no time limit, try to complete the test in 1 or 2 sessions.

Your estimated IQ score, general population percentile ranking, and the answers to the problems are all provided when you complete the test.
