Are IQ tests accurate?

This won’t be a long post, but have a look at this question below, take from a real IQ test.

If you really want to, have a go at trying to solve it, when you’re ready, read the official answer below:

Official Answer =  10… because the sum of all 4 values = 26.

I wonder how many people have got this question wrong, just because there is more than one answer.

For example : 6; 4 × 9 = 36 might not be as obvious, but its not wrong either. because the pattern is indeed in the question.

Main problem with these – spot the pattern questions is that any answer is infact correct, because its only a matter of time before you can find a pattern to match the answer, the only thing that changes is the complexity of the pattern.
