Abstract Reasoning Test Intro
In short, the correct answer, (A), is because the largest figure in Set A is white. In each of the 6 squares that make up Set A the largest figure is white. Whereas, the largest figure in Set B is always black.
First Step – Identifying Set A’s features
There are 34 figures within each square.
There is one large shape and many smaller shapes shown in each of Set A’s squares. The fact that there is one larger shape may be the key to this block of Abstract Reasoning questions.
The shapes appear to vary quite randomly within each square and across the six squares in Set A. Hence, the shape of figures within each square is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set A.
Some of the figures are black and some of the figures are white. However, the largest figure is always coloured white.
The figures appear to be positioned quite randomly within each of Set A’s six squares. Hence this feature is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set A.
There are no additional characteristics of the figures in Set A that indicate an underlying pattern across all six squares. 
Reasoning Test Practice Part II
Second Step – Identifying Set A’s repeating patternConfirmation that the repeating pattern is that the largest figure is always white in Set A. 
Third Step – – Identifying Set B’s features
There are 24 figures within each square.
There is one large shape and 13 smaller shapes shown in each square.
The shapes vary within each square and across the six squares in Set B. Hence, the shape of figures within each square is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that units the six squares in Set B.
Some of the figures are black and some of the figures are white. However, the largest figure is always coloured black.
The figures appear to be positioned randomly. Hence this feature is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set B.
There are no additional characteristics of the figures in Set B that indicate an underlying pattern across all six squares. 
Reasoning Test Practice Part III
Fourth Step – Identifying Set B’s Repeating PatternConfirmation that the repeating pattern is that the larger figure is always black in Set B. 
Fifth Step – Identifying the theme that Set A and Set B have in commonThe repeating pattern that unites Sets A and B is that the largest figure is always white in Set A and is always black in Set B. 
Sixth StepThe largest shape in Question 1 is a rectangle. This is coloured white. Hence the correct answer is Set A. 
Answer and Reasoning for Example item 2The largest figure in this question is a white arrow, thus the correct answer is (A) for Set A. Please note that Steps 15 are only required for the first question in each question block.Sixth Step
