    After gaining the side mission Enigma Conundrum and netting
    Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360)IQ TestThe IQ Test achievement in Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360) worth 12 pointsSolve the first riddle

    You need to proceed to the courthouse where a fight will ensue and you'll save a hostage, this is not the one intended for the achievement. Afterwards you'll receive your first radio frequency for the Enigma Box riddle which will unlock the location of the first hostage to save for the achievement in question.

    Follow the marker for the Riddler Hostage side quest now and you'll find a ? symbol painted on the wall, *also a political assualt you can stop if you haven't yet*. press "A" on it and Batman will knock on the wall and open the path to the door. Once inside the first door turn around and there'll be a ? with a switch to hit with a batarang to open the door to the main room.

    **If you've unlocked the line launcher you can skip over all the panels and Riddler makes a crack about you cheating**

    Inside the main room the floor consists of electrified panels connected to the lit up ? marks on the walls, hit the corresponding ? with batarangs and progess along the safe path before time runs out to the next dead panel. Advance this way until you make it to the lift then glide to the platform with the hostage to free them. The hostage will give you another frequency with the next riddle for the Enigma box and your next hostage location (provided you have enough Riddler trophies found)

    After retrieving the Enigma Machine from the courthouse you receive a waypoint to follow to find the first of five riddle hostages. The room you end up in is electrified and you are required to hit the questions marks located on the walls of the room with your Batarang in the proper order to free the hostage.

    Below is my video guide showing how the room can be solved.

    Following the Riddler Hostage side quest follow the marker on the map to the area for the trial room once on the ground look for a "?" symbol painted on a wooden wall move towards the wall and hit "A" when prompted to knock down the wall and enter the trial room.
    you will come to a room filled with electric pads on the floor, turn on detective mode look for the "?" symbols on the walls, throw a batarang at the "?" symbols to make the pads turn off follow the now un-electrified pads to the next safe pad rinse and repeat till you get to hostage

    Delta748I only saw 2 switched that I could activate, the third raises the lift. I couldn't figure it out, so I just got real close to the lift and tumbled towards it. :P I was playing on Normal, you'll probably die if you were on hard.
