A 3-D shape consists of six color cubes (two blue, two red and two yellow ones) and the cubes touch each other only with their edges and corners but not sides. There are 12 possible 2D views of the shape – diagrams A-L. Which of the views are correct and which are not?
This type of puzzle is essential for training cognitive abilities by imagining 3-D objects and manipulating them in your mind. Try this out yourself, and then do the puzzle with your child! Great brainteaser to supplement your gifted and talented test preparation (CogAT, Inview, SCAT, etc.) at home.
