Scenes Level 1

This quiz develops spatial vision.
Rotating a geometric shape around any of its axis, included in its plane, results in a solid of revolution. The task is to decide which of the geometric shapes displayed on the left side of the screen has to be rotated around the red axis to generate a solid of revolution as seen in the animation.

There are two levels of difficulty. Level 1 includes easier tasks, while Level 2 is more challenging.

The quiz consists of sets of 5 randomly selected questions each; the program always counts the number of correct and wrong answers. Related items Solids of revolution
