Mechanical Reasoning Test Second Edition (MRT-2)

For this test, you need to understand what a pivot is. A pivot is a pin or axle around which a lever or wheel can turn. A fixed pivot is a pin or axle around which a lever or wheel can turn, but the fixed pivot itself does not move. A fixed pivot is indicated by a black dot, as demonstrated below in Example 1.

Example 1

A non-fixed pivot is also a pin or axle around which a lever or wheel can turn, but the non-fixed pivot itself can move. A non-fixed pivot is indicated by a clear dot, as demonstrated below in Example 2.
