Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

The following activity is a practice exercise to help you measure your success under timed conditions.

If you are unsure of an answer, move on to the next question.

You should come back to questions you found difficult at the end if you have time.

 

In this activity, you will be working out sequences that use letters of the alphabet. Some will be in alphabetical order, whilst others will be in reverse alphabetical order.

Let's try one together as a reminder:

 

Below are two alphabet charts for you to use as a reference:


A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F E D C B A 

 

Take a look at the following alphabetic sequence:
AC, DG, HL, _

 

What are the next two letters in the sequence? 

 

First, put your fingers on the letters A and C on the alphabet line above.
Then move them to D and G.
Then move them to H and L.

 

The pattern is that the gap between each pair of letters widens by one each time like this: A_C, D_ _G, H_ _ _L etc.

 

If we apply this pattern then we get MR.

So the sequence would be: AC, DG, HL, MR…

 

Now it's time to begin this practice exercise.

Good luck!
