Reasoning and General Intelligence – Figure Formation & Analysis

In this topic, a question is one of the following types:

• Formation of triangles/square/rectangle etc. either by joining of three figures after choosing them from the given five figures or by joining any other pieces after selecting them from given alternatives.
• Making up a figure from given components.
• Making up a three dimensional figure by paper folding.
• Rearrangement of the parts of given figure.
• Fragmentation of key figure into simple pieces.

TYPE-I: Formation of triangles/square/rectangle etc. either by joining of three figures after choosing them from the given five figures or by joining any other pieces after selecting them from given alternatives.

EXAMPLE 1. A set of five figures (A), (B), (C), (D) and (E)    are followed by four combinations as the alternatives. Select the alternative which represents the combination of figures which if fitted together, will form a complete triangle.

(a) BCD                        (b) ABD

(c) CDE                        (d) ABE

Sol.      (d) If figures A, B and E are fitted together, the resultant figure will be triangle.

EXAMPLE 2: A set of five figures (A), (B); (C), (D) and (E) are followed by four combination as the alternatives. Select the alternative which represents the combination of figures which if fitted together, will form a complete square.

(a) ABC                       (b) ACD

(c) ACE                        (d) CDE

Sol. (c) Since we have to construct a square, therefore, f1 select a piece which contains a right angle between the adjacent edges. Then try to fit another piece in its hold spaces. If it doesn’t fit then select another piece this procedure with different pieces. Similarly find the  piece to get a completed square.
