**Q 1 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. One flower has 8 petals. If the pattern repeats, how many petals will 7 flowers have?**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

In given pattern each flower has 8 petals.

**Step 2:**

So, 7 flowers should have 7 × 8 = 56 petals.

**Q 2 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many dots will figure 4 have?**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

In given pattern horizontal dots in numbers are 3, 5, 7 and vertical dots in numbers are 2, 3, 4

**Step 2:**

So, figure 4 will have 9 horizontal dots and 5 vertical dots. A total of 9 + 5 = 14 dots.

**Q 3 - The sequence of 3 figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many marbles will there be in figure 5?**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

In given pattern horizontal marbles are always 3 in number and vertical marbles in numbers are 1, 2, 3

**Step 2:**

So, figure 5 will have 3 horizontal marbles and 5 vertical marbles. A total of 3 + 5 = 8 marbles.

**Q 4 - The sequence of 3 figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many triangles will the figure 5 have?**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of triangles in the three figures are 1, 2, and 3. This is the pattern.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the figure 5 should have 5 triangles.

**Q 5 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many small circles will figure 4 have?**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of small circles in the three figures are 1, 3, and 5. These numbers are consecutive odd numbers.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the figure 4 should have 7 small circles.

**Q 6 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many small squares will figure 4 have?**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of small squares in the three figures are 1, 5, and 9. This is an arithmetic sequence whose common difference is 4.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the figure 4 should have 9 + 4 or 13 small squares.

**Q 7 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many small squares will figure 5 have?**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of small squares in the three figures are 2, 4, and 6. This is an arithmetic sequence whose common difference is 2.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the figure 5 should have 6 + 2 + 2 or 10 small squares.

**Q 8 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many small boxes will figure 3 have?**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of small boxes in the two figures are 7 + 5, and 7 + 5 + 3. This is an arithmetic sequence having decreasing odd numbers.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the figure 3 should have 7 + 5 + 3 + 1 or 16 small boxes.

**Q 9 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many smoke signs will Stage 5 have?**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of smoke signs in the three stages are 1, 2, and 3. This is an arithmetic sequence whose common difference is 1.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the stage 5 should have 3 + 1 + 1 or 5 smoke signs.

**Q 10 - The sequence of figures shows a pattern. If the pattern repeats, how many bubbles will Stage 6 have?**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The number of bubbles in the three stages are 1, 2, and 3. This is an arithmetic sequence whose common difference is 1.

**Step 2:**

As per the pattern, the stage 6 should have 3 + 1 + 1 + 1 or 6 bubbles.
