Question

Jim is making a repeating pattern for the rule "Triangle, Square, and Rectangle."

The 35th shape in the pattern is

  1. Triangle    
  2. Square    
  3. Rectangle    
  4. Pentagon    

Hint:

We are given a repeating pattern of three shapes made by Jim. The three shapes are triangle, square and rectangle. The rule to write shapes is “Triangle, Square and rectangle”. We are asked to find the shape at 35th place.

The correct answer is: Square


    The given pattern in words is Triangle, Square, Rectangle, Triangle, Square, Rectangle
    We are asked to find the shape at the 35th place.
    The rule used to write the pattern is “ Triangle, Square, Rectangle”.
    Three shapes are repeating. And, the third shape is a rectangle.
    So, all multiples of three will have rectangle in their position.
    We have to find the shape at 35th place. It is not a multiple of 3.
    The number closest to 35 which is a multiple of 3 is 33. So, at 33rd position there will be a rectangle.
    35 is two places after 33. The shape which will come two places after rectangle is a square.
    So, the shape at the 35th place is a square.

    We have to be careful about the sequence of the pattern.
