    You can only see one number? :confused:

    I was thinking more along the lines of the Matrix.

    I assumed it was the one that you only see a number if you are red/green colour blind. They usually throw that one in to tests so if you're not colour blind, there's usually one where the 'correct' answer is 'no number'.

    Never seen one of those. Is there anyone on the BBS who is colour-blind that can confirm for us?

    It may not be part of the official test, to be fair I've only ever done one for the police entry exam, and I think they may put that one in to throw off people just guessing at numbers (or who have memorised the plates, which is apparently possible if you're really keen to fool one of these things)

    The test I always got in school was similar to the test in the link below, with a differently shaded number in each circle. I don't recall ever getting one with the number deliberately left out, but it's been a long time since I've had one so I could be wrong.

    There are ones with the number left out, but those are a different colors. I can't remember exactly how it goes but it has something to do with a colorblind person seing different patterns in those ones and a non-color blind person just seeing random colors.
