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.
Look at these two shapes:
Which of the shapes below would best fit in a group with these two shapes?
a) b) c) d) e)
First, we have to work out what the first two shapes have in common.
They both have two matching end shapes, either side of a middle shape. They are both presented vertically.
This means we need to look for a shape which has two identical shapes at the top and bottom, which is also presented vertically.
The only option which fits these criteria is shape b so this is our correct answer.
Now it's time to begin this practice exercise.
