## 11. Block Counting

This part of the test measures your ability to “see into” a 3-dimensional pile of blocks. Given a certain numbered block, your task is to determine how many other blocks the numbered block touches. **Blocks are considered touching only if all or part of their faces touch. Blocks that only touch corners do not count.** All of the blocks in each pile are the same size and shape. Every question is worded exactly the same. The question reads, *“In the following block-set, how many other blocks are touching block number X?”* where “X” is a number one through five. Find the correctly numbered block and answer with the number of block faces that touch it.

Look at the sample block-set below.

The correct answers are:

Block #1: touches 3 other block faces

Block #2: touches 2 other block faces

Block #3: touches 4 other block faces

Block #4: touches 5 other block faces

Block #5: touches 2 other block faces
