Embedded Figures

## Meaning

• Embedded figures are the figures hidden inside the other figure.
• In other words, a figure (X) is said to be embedded inside figure (Y), if figure (Y) contains a part of Figure (X).
• We are required to select from the alternatives that figure clearly shows the embedded portion of the original figures.

Example:

Embedded Figures is a problem-solving technique that involves identifying a smaller or simpler figure hidden within a larger or more complex figure. It assesses an individual's ability to perceive and recognize shapes within a larger context.

## Types of Embedded Figures

Single Embedded Figures: Involves identifying a single figure hidden within a larger figure.

• Example: Identify a triangle hidden within a larger square.

Multiple Embedded Figures: Involves identifying multiple smaller figures hidden within a larger figure, often with overlapping elements.

• Example: Identify several triangles hidden within a larger circle.

## Strategies for Solving Embedded Figures Problems

• Analyze the Larger Figure: Carefully examine the larger or outermost figure to understand its overall shape and structure.
• Focus on Details: Pay attention to smaller elements or details within the larger figure that may form part of the embedded figure.
• Mentally Outline the Embedded Figure: Mentally trace the outline of the embedded figure within the larger figure to visualize its shape and location.
• Use Logical Deduction: Use logical deduction to eliminate irrelevant details and focus on identifying the embedded figure.

Steps to Solve

• Do not get tensed by seeing the complexity of the figures.
• Carefully understand the form of the given question figure.
• Sometimes the rotation or reflection of the figures may be confusing.
• Think wisely before selecting the answer.
