Question: 1

In each of the following questions, group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once. (A) 1, 3, 6; 2, 4, 8; 5, 7, 9

(B) 1, 2, 4; 3, 5, 7; 6, 8, 9

(C) 1, 3, 9; 2, 7, 8; 4, 5, 6

(D) 1, 3, 9; 2, 5, 6; 4, 7, 8

Ans: D

1, 3, 9 have one element placed inside a different element.

2, 5, 6 contain two mutually perpendicular linews dividing the figure into four parts.

4, 7, 8 have two similar elements (unequal in size) attached to each other.

Question: 2

In each of the following questions, group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once. (A) 1, 4, 8; 2, 5, 6; 3, 7, 9

(B) 1, 4, 6; 2, 5, 7; 3, 8, 9

(D) 1, 3, 7; 2, 4, 6; 5, 8, 9

Ans: A

1, 4, 8 contain similar elements (not equal in size) each divided into four parts and attached to each other.

2, 5, 6 contain three elements placed one inside the other.

3, 7, 9 contain one element inside the other, which may or may not be similar.

Question: 3

In each of the following questions, group the given figures into three classes using each figure only once. (A) 2, 5, 8; 1, 7, 9; 3, 4, 6

(B) 3, 6, 8; 2, 4, 9; 1, 5, 7

(D) 1, 5, 9; 3, 6, 7; 2, 4, 8

Ans: D

In the given nine figures, the figures 1, 5 and 9 are cup-shaped three dimensional figures; the figure 2, 4 and 8 are simple geometrical two dimensional figures and dividing the figure into four parts.

Thus, the given nine figures can be grouped into three classes (1, 5, 9) (2, 4, 8) and (3, 6, 7).

Ans: B

1, 7, 9 contain two similar elements one inside the other but not touching each other.

2, 3, 6 contain two similar elements one inside the other and both touching each other.

4, 5, 8 are divided into equal parts by straight lines emerging from the centre.
