# Grouping of Identical figures

In the Questions asked in this chapter 6, 7 or 9 images are given. The candidates are required to analyze these pictures by creating relationships with each other, that is, in one way, the related pictures are to be kept in one group and in another way, the related pictures are to be kept in one group and the same groups should be selected from the answer options. All the groups of correct answer options show the relation of the correct pictures in different groups.

Example: The sequence of shapes is given below, which can be grouped into several sections. From the given options, select the group in which the shapes can be categorized.

(a) 2, 5, 9 ; 3, 6, 8 ; 1, 4, 7
(b)
1, 6, 7 ; 3, 5, 8 ; 2, 4, 9
(c)
2, 5, 9 ; 3, 4, 8 ; 1, 6, 7
(d)
1, 3, 8 ; 2, 4, 6 ; 5, 7, 9

Solution: (c) Figure 2, 5 and 9 are made up of curved lines. The shape 3, 4 and 8 is made of simple lines, while the figure 1, 6 and 7 are made of both curves and simple lines. Similarly, we have to group shapes by grouping them. Therefore, the answer (c) is correct when the three groups are mixed.
