Chimera Test of Mental Maturity

By William F. Bultas
This quiz should be taken just for fun. The questions should to some extent measure your ability to think and your knowledge, but don't take the test too seriously as far as being an indicator of your intelligence. You may want to use scratch paper to work out problems and write down your answers. Don't use other pages on the web or any reference aids to work out the problems, and try to complete the test in one session (there is no set time limit). Guess if you are not sure of an answer. When you are done, click here to see the answers. You can then evaluate how well you performed using the scale below. If you are under age 21, or if English is not your primary language, add a few points to your score. There may be other circumstances where you should add some points, and you should be the judge of when and to what extent this applies. Have fun!

Problems 1-10 are each worth 1 point. Problems 11-15 are each worth 2 points.
