On this test you are given a sequence of shapes known as original figures and final figures. The shapes have undergone up to 5 operations, shown as dots or keys on a scale, when transforming from original to final figures. You are given an original image and indication of which actions it has undergone. Your task is to identify which key leads to which action, and then identify the final figure.
You have 90 seconds to answer each question. When you move on to the next question the clock will restart to 90 seconds, and if you run out of time, the test will move on regardless.
