This study is exploratory research aimed to find out the ability to solve HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skill) questions of students who have visual (SV), auditory (SA), and kinesthetic (SK) learning styles of grade 8th Junior High School 33 Makassar. The data collection instruments used in this study were HOTS questions of type C4 (analysis) and C5 (evaluation) based on the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. Furthermore, to obtain credible data, method triangulation was applied by using written tests and doing interviews. The research subjects consisted of 3 students in which each of them had a different learning style. The results of the study show that: 1) student with visual learning style does not have any difficulty in understanding the problems, planning the solutions, solving the problems, and reviewing the solutions; 2) student with auditory learning style does not have any difficulty in understanding the problems and reviewing the solutions, but has difficulties in planning the solutions and solving the problems; 3) student with kinesthetic learning style does not have difficulties in reviewing the solutions but has difficulties in understanding the problems, planning the solutions, and solving the problems.
