Here is the shape you are looking for:

Which image is this trapezium hiding in?

a)         b)         c)         d) 


It can’t be hiding in image a as the trapezium has been flipped upside down here.

It also can’t be hiding in image d as the trapezium is too small here.

Can you see it hiding in image b?


Here it is!
