    Indicate a position in a space?

    • A.

      Line

    • B.

      Plane

    • C.

      Volume

    • D.

      Point

    Correct Answer
    D. Point
    Explanation
    A point is the most basic element in geometry that indicates a specific position in space. Unlike a line, plane, or volume, a point has no dimensions and does not extend in any direction. It is simply a location represented by a single coordinate. Therefore, when asked to indicate a position in space, the correct answer would be a point.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A line extended in a direction other than its intrinsic direction?

    • A.

      Line

    • B.

      Plane

    • C.

      Volume

    • D.

      Point

    Correct Answer
    B. Plane
    Explanation
    A plane is a two-dimensional surface that extends infinitely in all directions. Unlike a line, which has only one dimension and extends in a specific direction, a plane can extend in any direction other than its intrinsic direction. Therefore, a plane is the correct answer for a line extended in a direction other than its intrinsic direction.

    Defines the limit of a boundaries or volume in a creative composition?

    • A.

      Line

    • B.

      Plane

    • C.

      Volume

    • D.

      Point

    Correct Answer
    B. Plane
    Explanation
    In a creative composition, a plane defines the limit of boundaries or volume. A plane is a two-dimensional surface that extends infinitely in all directions. It provides a flat surface for objects and elements to be placed upon or within, creating a defined space or boundary. Unlike a line, which is one-dimensional, a plane has width and height, allowing for a more comprehensive definition of boundaries or volume in a composition. A point, on the other hand, is a zero-dimensional object and does not have the capacity to define boundaries or volume.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    It is the primary identifying characteristic of a volume? Established by the shapes and interrelationships of the planes that describes the boundaries of the volume?

    • A.

      Texture

    • B.

      Form

    • C.

      Surface

    • D.

      Mass

    Correct Answer
    B. Form
    Explanation
    Form refers to the overall shape and structure of an object or volume. It is the primary identifying characteristic of a volume because it is determined by the shapes and interrelationships of the planes that describe the boundaries of the volume. Texture refers to the surface quality of an object, surface refers to the outermost layer of an object, and mass refers to the physical weight or density of an object. None of these characteristics specifically relate to the primary identifying characteristic of a volume.

      Horizontal

    • D.

      Combination of vertical and horizontal line

    Correct Answer
    C. Horizontal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is horizontal because in Prairie house designs by Frank Lloyd Wright, horizontal lines are a prominent architectural feature. This can be seen in the low, flat roofs, long horizontal bands of windows, and the overall emphasis on horizontal proportions. The horizontal lines help to create a sense of harmony and connection with the surrounding landscape, which is a key aspect of Wright's design philosophy.

    • A.

      Pyramid

    • B.

      Polygon

    • C.

      Cone

    • D.

      Hexagon

    Correct Answer
    A. Pyramid
    Explanation
    A polyhedron with a polygonal base and triangular faces meeting at a common point or vertex is called a pyramid. In a pyramid, the base can be any polygon, and the triangular faces connect the vertices of the base to the apex. This structure resembles the shape of a pyramid, hence the name. A cone is also a polyhedron with a circular base, but its faces are not triangular. A hexagon is a polygon, but it does not meet the criteria of having triangular faces meeting at a common vertex.

    Which is NOT a "fibonacci series number" from 1-114?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      15

    • C.

      21

    • D.

      34

    Correct Answer
    B. 15
    Explanation
    The Fibonacci series is a sequence of numbers where each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. In this case, the numbers given are 2, 15, 21, and 34. To determine which number is not a Fibonacci series number, we can check if each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. Starting with 2, we see that it is the sum of 1 and 1, making it a Fibonacci number. Moving on to 15, it is not the sum of the two preceding numbers (8 and 13), so it is not a Fibonacci number. Therefore, the correct answer is 15.

    Correct Answer
    A. Golden rectangle
    Explanation
    A rectangle whose sides are proportioned according to the golden section is known as a golden rectangle. The golden section, also known as the golden ratio, is a mathematical ratio of approximately 1.618. In a golden rectangle, the ratio of the length to the width is equal to the golden ratio. This proportion is aesthetically pleasing and has been used in art and architecture for centuries. The other options, such as fibonacci rectangle, modulor scale, and pythagorean rectangle, do not specifically refer to rectangles with sides proportioned according to the golden section.
