**Practice Flour Mill of Nigeria past questions and answers** for the 2022 graduate trainee second stage exams so as to study and prepare ahead. The download is free and in PDF format.

Basically, the Flour Mill of Nigeria Plc Recruitment Test is a Computer-Based Assessment (CBA) and is a multiple-choice question that is divided into different categories.

During the aptitude test, you will encounter 40 questions which you are to complete in 30 minutes. This means you have 40 seconds to answer each question.

Numerical reasoning contains basic, but logical quantitative questions, while verbal reasoning is not different from many standard aptitude tests. The critical reasoning section basically

tests your ability to identify patterns, then finally the abstract reasoning that comes last.

**12.** “In its annual report released today, Company Y indicates that all of its manufacturing plants plan to begin converting the raw material of its product from Material A, which is rapidly becoming scarce, to a new synthetic Material B currently under development in its laboratories.

**14.** “It was once believed that women are born with all the eggs they’ll ever have. In a study published in Nature Medicine, Jonathan Tilly, professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive biology found that stem cells taken from a women’s ovaries can be used to create new eggs or oocytes, a potentially groundbreaking discovery for fertility treatments.

Using donated frozen ovaries from doctors in Japan who treat women seeking gender reassignment, Tilly’s team isolated egg-producing stem cells in human ovaries using new cell-sorting techniques to coax them into developing oocytes. Building on research by Chinese scientists, they then fished out a protein believed to sit on the surface of only those stem cells and tracked them by inserting a gene into the cells which caused them to glow green. If the cells produced eggs, the eggs would also glow green. The cells were then injected into biopsied human ovarian tissue that was then grafted beneath the skin of mice. Within 7 to 14 days, the graft had produced a budding of oocytes, with some of the eggs glowing with the fluorescent tag, proving that they came from the stem cells. But others did not, which suggested they were already present in the human tissue before the injection. “The discovery opens the door for development of unprecedented technologies to overcome infertility in women. If the process can be guided correctly, there is a chance that sometime in the future, we might get to the point of actually having an unlimited source of human eggs, which would rewrite human-assisted reproduction”, Tilly said in a press release.
