Nowadays, Interior and Exterior designing are compulsory for home, offices, colleges, etc. Everyone wants to have the perfect design to fascinate their clients. This quiz has been made on Elements and Principles of Design for art lovers and passionate artists who like to paint and draw. There is a list of questions that you have to attempt carefully.

• 1.

### A path made by a moving point.

• A.

Line

• B.

Shape

• C.

Space

• D.

Texture

A. Line
Explanation
A path made by a moving point is commonly referred to as a line. A line is a basic element in geometry that extends infinitely in both directions. It is created by connecting two points and represents the shortest distance between them. Lines can vary in length, direction, and curvature, but they always have one dimension and no width or depth. In the context of the given question, line is the most suitable answer as it accurately describes the concept of a path made by a moving point.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Texture is...

• A.

The way the surface feels or looks.

• B.

The area above an object.

• C.

A path made by a moving point.

• D.

None of the above.

A. The way the surface feels or looks.
Explanation
Texture refers to the physical or visual quality of a surface. It describes how an object feels when touched or how it appears to the eye. It can be smooth, rough, bumpy, soft, or any other characteristic that can be perceived through touch or sight. The correct answer accurately defines texture as the way the surface feels or looks.

### Forms are three dimensional. They have height, width, and thickness. Some common forms are:

• A.

Cylinders, cubes, spheres and cones

• B.

Circles, squares, rectangles and triangles

• C.

Difficult to draw

• D.

Use for completing paper work

A. Cylinders, cubes, spheres and cones
Explanation
The given answer is correct because it lists examples of three-dimensional forms. Cylinders, cubes, spheres, and cones all have height, width, and thickness, making them three-dimensional shapes. These shapes are commonly encountered in everyday life and can be easily visualized. On the other hand, circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles are two-dimensional shapes that lack thickness. The statement "difficult to draw" is unrelated to the answer and does not provide any relevant information. Additionally, the phrase "use for completing paper work" is not clear and does not contribute to the explanation.

### By joining lines you can create:

• A.

Color

• B.

Shapes

• C.

Spaces

• D.

Textures

B. Shapes
Explanation
By joining lines, you can create various shapes. Lines can be connected to form geometric shapes like squares, circles, triangles, and rectangles. These shapes can be further combined or modified to create more complex shapes. By manipulating the lines, you can also create irregular or abstract shapes. Therefore, the correct answer is "shapes" as joining lines allows for the creation of different shapes.

### Shapes are flat. Some shapes are geometric, like:

• A.

Doors, cars, shoes, and candy

• B.

pancakes, shoeboxes and soup cans

• C.

Spheres, pyramids, cones and cylinders

• D.

Circles, squares, triangles and rectangles

D. Circles, squares, triangles and rectangles
Explanation
The given answer includes shapes that are commonly known as geometric shapes. Circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles are all examples of geometric shapes. They have specific properties and characteristics that distinguish them from other shapes. These shapes are often taught in mathematics and are used in various applications such as architecture, engineering, and design.

### Artists create visual weight with:

• A.

Balance

• B.

Emphasis

• C.

Pattern

• D.

Rhythm

A. Balance
Explanation
Artists create visual weight with balance. Balance refers to the distribution of visual elements within a composition to create a sense of equilibrium. It can be achieved through symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangements of elements, where the visual weight is evenly distributed. This helps to create a harmonious and pleasing composition. By using balance, artists can control the viewer's perception and guide their attention to specific areas of the artwork.

### Excitement and interest in artworks are created using:

• A.

Contrast

• B.

Rhythm

• C.

Space

• D.

Value

A. Contrast
Explanation
Contrast is used in artworks to create excitement and interest. By juxtaposing different elements such as colors, shapes, textures, or values, contrast adds visual impact and makes certain elements stand out. It creates a sense of tension or drama, capturing the viewer's attention and making the artwork more dynamic. Contrast can be achieved through various techniques like using complementary colors, varying the size or shape of elements, or contrasting light and dark values. Overall, contrast adds visual interest and helps to create a compelling and engaging artwork.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Artists use emphasis to make certain parts of their work stand out and grab your attention. The center of interest or _________________ is the place the artist draws your eye to first.

• A.

Focal point

• B.

Point of interest

• C.

Attention point

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
The correct answer is "all of the above". Artists use emphasis techniques such as color, contrast, and composition to create a focal point or point of interest in their artwork. This focal point is the area that the artist wants to draw the viewer's attention to first. By using various elements and techniques, artists can make certain parts of their work stand out and grab the viewer's attention, creating a visual hierarchy and guiding the viewer's eye throughout the artwork.

### Formal balance is another word for which type of balance?

• A.

Asymmetrical

• B.

• C.

Symmetrical

• D.

Geometric

C. Symmetrical
Explanation
Formal balance refers to a type of balance where the elements on both sides of a central axis are arranged in a mirror-like manner, creating a sense of equilibrium and stability. This is also known as symmetrical balance, as the arrangement of elements is identical on both sides. Asymmetrical balance, on the other hand, involves the placement of different elements in a way that still achieves visual balance. Radial balance is characterized by elements radiating outwards from a central point. Geometric balance, although not explicitly mentioned in the question, does not accurately describe the concept of formal balance.

### A  plan for selecting colors for a composition is also known as a ________.

• A.

Color spectrum

• B.

Color Wheel

• C.

Color Scheme

• D.

Color Mix

C. Color Scheme
Explanation
A plan for selecting colors for a composition is also known as a color scheme. A color scheme refers to the selection and arrangement of colors in a design or artwork. It involves choosing colors that harmonize and work well together to create a desired visual effect or mood. Color schemes can be based on various principles, such as complementary colors, analogous colors, or monochromatic colors. By using a color scheme, artists and designers can create a cohesive and visually appealing composition.
