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.
Let's try one together as a reminder.
Look at the shapes below:
In this question type, we need to join these three shapes together to make a new shape.
Matching letters have to touch, so, in this example, both the sides labelled a have to be touching each other and both the sides labelled b have to be touching each other.
Which of the following options would the new shape look like?
a) b) c)
If we join all of the shapes together, without rotating anything, it would look like this:
As this doesn’t match any of the options, we need to rotate it.
If it is rotated a quarter turn in an anti-clockwise direction, it looks exactly like option b.
So the correct answer is b.
Now it's time to begin this practice exercise.
