In the Paper Folding Questions, students need to determine the appearance of a perforated and folded sheet of paper, once opened.
The figures at the top represent a square piece of paper being folded, and the last of these figures has one hole on it.
One of the lower five figures shows where the perforation will be when the paper is fully unfolded. You have to understand which of these images is the right one.
First, the paper was folded horizontally, from left to right.
Then, one holes were punched out. Therefore, when the paper is unfolded the holes will mirror on the left and right side of the sheet.
The right answer is “B”.
The best way to get ready for these challenging questions is to practice. The patterns that show up on the test can confuse students, so the demonstration of folding and unfolding real paper can be very helpful.
