# NVR Type 05 - Shape sequences

## Instructions

The five squares on the left contain shapes arranged in order to form a sequence. One of the squares is missing. Choose which one of the five squares on the right should take the place of the empty square.

## Method

To solve the question, have a look at the relationship between the squares on the left. Start from the left of the sequence and see what changes happen from one to the next square. Look out for shapes that are increasing/decreasing in size or number, their shift (movement) or colour change. To find the answer, look at the five possibilities given to the right and eliminate all the answers that are clearly wrong first.

## Examples

### Example Question 1:

Explanation: The number of shapes is decreasing by one each step. The first to be removed is the middle circle. So the missing image should have only 3 shapes. The black square is rotating one position anticlockwise each step, so it should be in the top left for the missing image.
