    Explanation
    Ordinary playing cards typically consist of 52 cards divided into four suits (hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades) with each suit containing cards numbered from 2 to 10 and four face cards (jack, queen, king, and ace). These cards are considered as the Minor Arcana in tarot card readings. The Major Arcana, on the other hand, consists of 22 cards that represent significant life events and spiritual lessons.

    B. Minor Arcana
    Explanation
    Tarot playing cards are divided into two main sections: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards that represent significant life events and spiritual lessons. On the other hand, the Minor Arcana is made up of four suits, similar to regular playing cards, which are Cups, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles. Each suit in the Minor Arcana represents different aspects of life and provides more specific guidance and insights into everyday situations. Therefore, the correct answer to the question is "Minor Arcana."

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

The Rider-Waite Tarot deck was designed by Arthur Edward Waite and illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith and was first published in 1910. On the other hand, the Marseille Tarot deck has a much longer history and can be traced back to the 16th century. Therefore, the statement that the Rider-Waite Tarot deck is older than the Marseille Tarot is incorrect.
