IMAT 2014 Q21 [Store Logo]

During a recent storm the plastic company logo fell off the outside of the office building of Fleesam Ltd. and broke cleanly into the two pieces shown below:


A junior clerk took the two pieces to a signmaker to show what had happened, and asked him to make a new logo. Unfortunately after the clerk had left, the signmaker realised that he didn’t know how the two pieces had fitted together originally.

Which one of the following could not be Fleesam’s logo?


Simple steps to solve word problems:

  • Underline key information
  • Determine what they are trying to ask, and what you will need to solve it
    • Eliminate any non-essential information
  • Draw a picture, graph, or equation
    • In moments of high stress like exam taking, always work with the paper they give you to avoid careless mistakes.
  • Solve

For this question, the best approach will be to draw on the images on the exam paper itself. You can quickly go through A to E, and once you find out how they can fit together, you can move immediately to the next.

What is important to consider?
Size, orientation, and visible exterior edges.

Therefore D is correct.
