The questions are "

Section 4, Question 5 ( answers is a),
Section 4 Question 8 ( answer is a),
Section 4 Question 10 ( answer is d)
Section 4 Question 12 ( answer is a)

Thanks in anticipation!

answer to the first and third ones he says it just looked like it should be those ones LOL, I'd be interested to know a better reason though if anyone knows! The second and fourth ones are to do with the number of sides.

Thanks. I now understand answers 2 and 4 - that makes a lot of sense. Your son's explanation of answers 1 and 3 really made me laugh. The funny thing is that in the case of Question 10, my DS thought that d, the answer, was so obviously one that could be eliminated - and I agree!!

So if anyone can explain the answers Questions 5 and 10 in any other way I would be most grateful!!

Thanks

Yoyo - somehow I didn't see your explanation of Question 5 , first time around. Sorry. Yes - we agree with you and what makes me feel a bit better is that I had worked it out before I saw your answer ( having reflected on reflective symmetry!).

I'm so glad its my DS and not me who is taking the exam in September!!
