• A.

10

• B.

8

• C.

The height of the average figure is determined by the number of "heads" it has. Since the question asks how many "heads" the height is, the correct answer is 7.

### The average figure is the same height from head to toe as they are from fingertip to fingertip.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
This statement is true because the average figure refers to the average height of a person. When we say that the average figure is the same height from head to toe as they are from fingertip to fingertip, it means that the height of a person is generally proportional. This is because the length from head to toe is similar to the length from fingertip to fingertip, indicating that the average figure has a balanced and proportional body structure.

### The lines that describe the outer edges of objects and figures are called _____.

• A.

Contour lines

• B.

Horizon lines

• C.

Diagonal lines

• D.

Vertical lines

A. Contour lines
Explanation
Contour lines are the lines that outline the outer edges of objects and figures. They define the shape and form of the subject, creating a sense of depth and dimension. Unlike horizon lines, which represent the line where the sky meets the ground, or diagonal and vertical lines, which describe the direction or orientation of lines, contour lines specifically refer to the lines that enclose and define the outer boundaries of objects and figures.

### The average person's hips are located:

Between the third and fourth heads (counting from the top).

• B.

Between the fourth and fifth heads (counting from the top).

• C.

Exactly half way between the head and feet.

• D.

In the middle somewhere.

B. Between the fourth and fifth heads (counting from the top).
Explanation
The correct answer is "between the fourth and fifth heads (counting from the top)." This answer suggests that the average person's hips are located slightly below the midpoint between the head and feet. The phrase "counting from the top" implies that the heads are being used as reference points, and the hips fall between the fourth and fifth head.

### If a sheet of paper is vertical, which position is it in?

• A.

Portrait

• B.

Landscape

• C.

Bottom

• D.

Right

A. Portrait
Explanation
A sheet of paper is considered to be in the portrait position when it is vertical. This means that the longer side of the paper is positioned vertically, while the shorter side is positioned horizontally. In contrast, the landscape position refers to the longer side of the paper being positioned horizontally. Therefore, the correct answer is Portrait.

### What do you understand by positive space?

• A.

The main focus of a composition

• B.

The background of the composition

• C.

The texture of the composition

None of the above

A. The main focus of a composition
Explanation
Positive space refers to the main subject or focal point of a composition. It is the area that draws the viewer's attention and holds the most visual weight. In contrast, negative space refers to the background or empty areas surrounding the positive space. By understanding and effectively utilizing positive space, artists and designers can create a sense of balance, harmony, and emphasis within their compositions.

D. The guts
Explanation
The section that comes between the rib cage and the pelvic area is referred to as "the guts." This term is commonly used to describe the internal organs located within the abdominal cavity, including the stomach, intestines, liver, and kidneys. The guts play a crucial role in digestion, absorption of nutrients, and elimination of waste.

### What feature is halfway between the top of the head and the bottom of the chin?

• A.

Eyes

• B.

Nose

• C.

Lips

• D.

Mouth

A. Eyes
Explanation
The feature that is halfway between the top of the head and the bottom of the chin is the eyes. This is because the eyes are typically located in the middle of the face, between the forehead and the lower part of the face. They are positioned equidistant from the top and bottom, making them the correct answer in this case.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### The average figure is how wide?

• A.

• B.

1 arm

• C.

2 feet

• D.

Explanation
The correct answer is 2 heads because the question asks for the average figure's width. Among the given options, only "2 heads" represents a measurement of width. The other options, such as "1 arm" and "2 feet," represent measurements of length or height, which are not relevant to the question. The option "3 heads" is also incorrect because it suggests a measurement of width that is larger than the figure itself, which is not possible. Therefore, the average figure is 2 heads wide.
