Purpose: Spatial reasoning tests assess the ability to think about an object in three dimensions, and draw conclusions about them with limited information. Also, some with good spatial intelligence can think about objects when rotated or when it has a slight change.
Employers use spatial reasoning tests to test people's ability to visualize patterns, make a spatial judgement, and solve a problem.
Purpose: Logical reasoning test measures logical thinking to test problem-solving skills. Pattern recognition is aimed at quantifying your visual intelligence, and its the most important way to recognize what's going around us.
Those type of tests gives employers a prediction on how the employee would deal with problems, and recognize patterns that may cause future issues.

An Aptitude test is a structured assessment that aims to evaluate candidates' abilities to complete certain tasks and assignments without prior experience or knowledge. The world's largest organizations use pre-employment/placement tests as a part of the Applicants Tracking System (ATS) managed by third parties. Aptitude tests could be a part of the total score of the candidate (ATS may contain information as resume, personal information, previous experience, and aptitude tests results). Aptitude tests test a range of skills varying from logical thinking to spatial reasoning skills.
Nowadays, most aptitude tests' questions are asked in a tricky manner. Some people complain about struggling to pass aptitude or psychometric tests to get their jobs. The good news is that the most common reasons for failing aptitude tests are lack of preparation, not recognizing weak areas, and ignoring strong ones. The best approach is spending 80 % of time studying the weak areas, and 20 % to brushup strong ones.
These questions will help you work on all of the four specific areas of aptitude/placement tests: Verbal Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning, and Numerical reasoning.
Also, Situational Judgement Tests' ( that might also be a part of ATS ) questions' examples with the most effective solutions are available.
