TSA CBT Sample Questions
TSA X-Ray ORT Sample Questions
In the actual test, your speed in identifying these images is crucial, as it mirrors the split-second decision-making required in a real airport security setting. There is no room for hesitation, so you must be swift and unwavering in your observations.
Given the nature of the job that involves critical security checks, you should anticipate encountering highly challenging questions in this section of the TSA test. As a Transportation Security Officer (TSO), your role will involve identifying and flagging potential threats concealed within baggage, as individuals with malicious intent may go to great lengths to smuggle prohibited items. Your ability to utilize scanning tools effectively and exercise initiative in real-time threat detection will be crucial to perform your job successfully. Our course not only provides thorough test preparation but also fosters the development of crucial skills and insights required for the role.
Identifying the intended item can be challenging and requires consistent and accurate judgment, as baggage scans often contain deceptive elements or “red herrings.” Some items may not appear as they initially seem, making it difficult to determine their true nature.
Our course provides comprehensive coverage on correctly identifying items, enabling you to swiftly and accurately pinpoint the correct item. By using our instructional guides and practice test tools, you will be totally ready for the actual test.
In addition to identifying prohibited items, the X-Ray Test (ORT) also assesses your ability to identify specific non-prohibited items, such as bottles and shoes. Let’s examine a couple of examples.

TSA Reading Comprehension Sample Question
John is a teacher who is looking for a place to live in a city that he just moved into. These are the places that he is choosing from:
- Place 1 - An apartment that allows pets.
- Place 2 - An apartment that has a basketball court and boxing gym beside it (the basketball
court and boxing gym don’t have soundproofing).
- Place 3 - An apartment that doesn’t allow pets and is a considerable distance away from other buildings.
John chose building 3.
TSA Written Expression Sample Question
- If you do, you are considered a contributor to land and water pollution.
- When going to the beach, please remember to be a responsible tourist.
- Throw your trash properly and do not leave them by the seashore.
- That act, in turn, will then negatively affect marine life and more than likely your next beach visit.
Sentence (2), as the choices also suggest, is a good candidate for an opening sentence, as it states the main point of the to-be paragraph: to be a responsible tourist. (3) tells us how to be one, and (1) and (4) are supporting sentences about the consequences of not throwing trash properly.
