Middle Level SSAT SAMPLE QUESTIONS: Frequency

Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of frequency problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Middle Level SSAT.

What Are Frequency Problems?

When items in a group share at least one characteristic or attribute, the total number of those similar items is called their frequency. For example, if the face of a clock has a dot at five-minute intervals, the frequency of those dots is twelve per clock (60 ÷ 5 = 12).
